Norfolk State University student, football player killed in Norfolk”

Police responded to a call for a gunshot victim about 3:15 a.m., according to a news release.

When the officers arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound inside of an apartment.

This was the city's second homicide this weekend.

Mishkin can be reached by phone at 757-641-6669.

Ackies was pronounced dead at the scene. He previously played for Douglas Freeman High School in Henrico.

At Douglas Freeman, Ackies had a larger-than-life personality, Freeman baseball coach Ray Moore said.

A neighbor who lives in the building, but wasn't there at the time of the man's death, said several families with children live there.

A former Richmond-area football player was found dead in Norfolk Friday night, and another is charged in his death.

During the course of the preliminary investigation, detectives identified 22-year-old Jaquan Anderson as the suspect. He graduated in the spring and attended Norfolk State, where he was a freshman defensive lineman on the football team. He was arrested and charged with second degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

"This is such a tragic situation".

The Spartans' homecoming game against Savannah State went on as scheduled Saturday, with a moment of silence of Ackies held before kickoff. "Our prayers are with Nick's family during this very hard time", Miller said.

Anderson is reportedly being held in jail without bond. "He will be dearly missed by the entire Norfolk State University family".
