Former ND men’s basketball guard Cameron Biedscheid killed in Friday night shooting

Former Notre Dame basketball player Cameron Biedscheid was killed Friday night in St. Louis County, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Biedscheid, 27, was reportedly shot late Friday night in the same block where he lived in north St. Louis County. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the Post-Dispatch reported.

A four-star prospect in his recruiting class and the 2012 Missouri Mr. Show-Me Basketball awardee during his senior year at Cardinal Ritter High School, Biedscheid was one of head coach Mike Brey’s most highly touted recruits.

The 6-foot-7 guard played one season for the Irish, averaging 6.2 points and 1.4 rebounds per game, before transferring to the University of Missouri in December 2013.

The Post-Dispatch reported police did not indicate whether they had any suspects.
