According to the Associated Press, former college basketball player was killed in a murder-suicide. The incident happened in Shawnee, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri.

34-year-old Joshua Mobley — who was a native of Mission, Kansas — and 27-year-old Courtney Bivins — who was a native of Kansas City, Missouri — were killed near a park on Sunday. Authorities said Mobley shot Bivins to death, before turning the gun on himself.


The authorities do not believe that the two were in a relationship. However, they said that the two were “close friends.”

Bivins played college basketball for the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, where he played in 19 games. He then transferred to Campbellsville University Tigers, where she received her biology degree in 2013.

The former player also went by Courtney Clifton, according to Campbellsville University. She was a nurse, but was “actively pursuing a career in anesthesiology.”

Bivins was 14th on the all-time women’s basketball scoring list, according to Campbellsville Sports Information Director Jordan Alves.

“We are deeply saddened by the news of this tragedy,” Campbellsville President Michael V. Carter said in a release. “Courtney was fun to watch on the court, and I remember her talents fondly during her time as a Lady Tiger. We ask that everyone involved with Campbellsville University keep the Clifton and Bivins families in their prayers during this time.”
