Authorities have detained a juvenile in the deadly shooting of a former high school football star in Columbia.

The Columbia Missourian reports that police say 20-year-old Rovon Blocker, of Columbia, was shot Saturday night. Blocker was a star defensive lineman for Battle High School in 2016 and had signed with Coffeyville Community College in southeast Kansas.

Police said in a news release that the juvenile who was detained was “directly linked to the shooting.” No other information was immediately released, including the juvenile’s age.
