Tayshana Murphy, Recruited by UMiami Basketball, Gunned Down in Harlem
The attack happened at 4 a.m. Sunday in Harlem. Details are sketchy, but it appears that a group of men from a different project was looking to retaliate for an assault that had occurred earlier in the day. The men targeted Murphy and chased her through a hallway before shooting her dead.
It appears Murphy was not connected to the earlier assault.
Murphy, a high school senior, had received interest from numerous schools, but ESPN reports that Katie Meier's Lady Canes squad had particular interest her.
