Texas HS football player reportedly shot, killed days before state semifinal

Fort Bend Marshall senior defensive back Drew Conley, 17, was reportedly shot and killed in a domestic dispute on Monday.

According to ABC13 in Houston, Conley was involved in an argument with his uncle.

The argument allegedly started on the phone and continued when Conley arrived at the house. The uncle and Conley then continued to argue when the defensive back was shot in the leg.

The uncle claims he shot Conley in self defense.

Conley was taken to the hospital by his girlfriend where he died of his injury.

VYPE Magazine reached out to Marshall head coach James Williams who confirmed Conley had died. According to the MaxPreps team page, the senior played in six games for the Buffs this season and recorded 38 tackles, two passes defensed and an interception.
