A former Fairfield University basketball player was shot and killed in Philadelphia on Sunday, the Fairfield Minuteman reports.

Rich Flemming, 24, was shot multiple times just before 6 p.m. on Sunday, according to the report. He was pronounced dead that night at Temple University Medical Center.

A 22-year-old suspect was charged with murder in connection to the death, according to the Minuteman.

Flemming played in 25 games at Fairfield University as a forward in 2006-2007 before transferring to the University of Maryland at Baltimore County.

This comes just over a year after former Sacred Heart University basketball player Chauncey Hardy died in Romania in 2011 after he sustained injuries in a bar attack.
