By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher Former college football player Derjuan “PeeWee” Elston-Gambrell was killed on the Fourth of July in Toledo, Ohio. The alleged suspect is already in custody, according to WTOL 11. The authorities were dispatched to the 2000 block of Elliott. Once on the scene, they found Elston-Gambrell with a single gunshot wound that entered into his abdomen. Eye witnesses informed the authorities that 25-year-old Timothy Simmons had an argument with Elston-Gambrell before the shooting. Following the shooting, Simmons fled the scene. The authorities said Simmons called 911 to report that he shot his sister’s boyfriend. “The victim was in a relationship with the suspect’s sister,” TPD Lt. Kevan Toney said. “There’s domestic violence charges that were filed recently, so the brother went to address those concerns with the victim and it ultimately resulted in the suspect shooting the victim.” Simmons was later found at his residence. The authorities took him into custody there. Murder charges will be filed against Summons in Elston-Gambrell’s death. He is being held on $1 million bond. Simmons will have a court date on July 12th. Elston-Gambrell was part of the Class of 2011. However, during his only season with the team, he redshirted the season, before being dismissed from the program. He was dismissed from the program after Urban Meyer became head coach. Elston-Gambrell was dismissed following an assault charge, a misdemeanor, from an on-campus incident. According to the Toledo Blaze, he also faced menacing, and unlawful restraint after an incident at a campus dorm room.
