Police say robbery may have been motive in Demarius Reeds murder

Demarius Reed, a former Simeon Academy football player who went on to play for Eastern Michigan University, was found dead off-campus Friday morning.

Friends, family and teammates are paying their respects to football player Demarius Reed. Reed's visitation took place Friday night at the House of Hope on Chicago's Far South Side.

He was shot to death last Friday at an apartment near Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti. The 20-year-old was from Chicago but attended school there and was on the football team.

His funeral will be held Saturday in south suburban Harvey.

Police have not made any arrests in the case.
