Eastern Michigan football player remembered

The Eastern Michigan Unversity football team and fans held a moment of silence Saturday to remember Chicagoan Demarius Reed.

Reed was found shot to death in his off-campus apartment Friday morning.

Reed, a Chicago native, was a football star at Simeon Career Academy and would have donned jersey number two in Saturday’s Eastern Michigan game against Ohio University.

Instead, players wore a number two decal on their helmets and their family members wore number two pins in the stands.

Ypsilanti Police say a roommate discovered Reed’s body Friday morning in a hallway.

The 20-year-old was a communications major and played wide receiver for the EMU football team.

Police have ruled Reed’s death a homicide.  Robbery may have been the motive.
