April 19, 2004Former University of Georgia receiver Brice Hunter was shot and killed in a Chicago apartment building early Sunday morning. He was 29.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Hunter was shot several times after he went to the basement apartment to talk to a neighbor who had complained about loud music coming from Hunter's apartment. The two men fought and Hunter was shot, the Tribune reported. He died less than an hour later at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Thomas Williams, 38, was charged with failing to register a weapon after the pre-dawn shooting. Officers said Williams was not charged with murder because the shooting appeared to have been done in self-defense.
Hunter, a native of Valdosta, played for the Bulldogs from 1992-95. He had 182 catches for 2,373 yards, both of which were school records when he graduated. He played professionally for Tampa Bay and Miami. He was married to former UGA women's basketball player Brandi Decker and they have three children.
Funeral arrangements for Hunter are incomplete at this time.
