Eastern Michigan University football player Demarius Reed was found shot to death early Friday and authorities have launched an off-campus homicide investigation.

Ypsilanti Police Sgt. Thomas Eberts tells the Ann Arbor News that a man's body was found in the hallway of an apartment complex about 7:15 a.m. by his roommate. The victim appeared to have been shot to death.

The football team's website listed Reed as a junior from Chicago. The 5-foot-10-inch, 161-pound wide receiver played in six games this season, catching 15 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown.

He made 18 receptions for 171 yards in nine games last season. He scored one touchdown.
