Warrant issued in Desmond Allison murder case

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A warrant has been issued for a man suspected in the slaying of a former University of Kentucky basketball player.
Police in Columbus, Ohio, said Monday they filed an aggravated murder warrant for 35-year-old Richard Lee Willis of Columbus in the July 25 death of Desmond Allison. Willis hasn't yet been apprehended.
Authorities say Allison and a friend who survived, 36-year-old Malcolm Goff, were shot multiple times outside an apartment complex.
Goff and another friend of the 31-year-old Allison have said the killing may have stemmed from an argument between two women over a baseball cap. Police have said they believe the argument and shooting were related.
Allison played for the Kentucky Wildcats from 1998-2000. In his last season, he averaged 8.9 points per game and 4.4 rebounds.
