South Carolina State University says the engineering technology student shot to death on campus also played on the school's football team.

The university in Orangeburg said Saturday that 20-year-old Brandon Robinson was a defensive specialist who appeared in four games. He was shot to death Friday outside a student dormitory.

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division says Robinson was shot after arguing with 19-year-old Justin Bernard Singleton of Charleston. Singleton was charged with murder and arrested early Saturday at an Orangeburg apartment complex.

An arrest warrant filed by a SLED investigator says Robinson was killed after being shot in the neck.

South Carolina State University has about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.
