We’ve got a bit of sad news coming out of the holiday weekend…. Florida A&M University women’s basketball player Shannon Washington died earlier this morning after she was stabbed in the neck and killed during an argument at her apartment with her girlfriend Starquineshia Palmer (who was arrested and charged with first-degree murder).
Washington was an All-American player at Illinois Valley Community College before transferring to Florida A&M where she was expected to play shooting guard in the fall. RIP. [via]
