The brother of an NBA player was killed in a shooting early Saturday morning. According to a report from WTHR, Roger Randolph, the brother of NBA player Zach Randolph, was the victim of a shooting in their hometown of Marion, In.

According to the report, Randolph was found in the parking lot outside of a local restaurant.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

From the report:

They say the victim is Roger Randolph, the brother of Marion and NBA basketball star Zach Randolph.

The shooting happened at Hop's Blues Room shortly before 5:00 a.m., according to Sgt. Mark Stefanatos of Marion PD.

Zach Randolph was not believed to be in the area during the shooting.

Zach was a standout basketball player from Marion, who went on the play collegiately at Michigan State before entering the NBA.

Our thoughts are with the Randolph family.
