Police describe 'vehicle of interest' in Memphis slaying

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Memphis are trying to locate a car seen at the site of the slaying of a University of Memphis football player.

No arrests have been made in the death of 21-year-old Taylor Bradford of Nashville, who was shot to death on campus Sunday night.

Witnesses told police that two unidentified men were seen getting out of the four-door sedan and walking into a gated apartment complex where Bradford lived. Officers were told that at least one other person stayed in the car.

Investigators have not disclosed a motive for the killing but are looking into reports that Bradford won $3,000 or more the night before his death at a casino in Mississippi just south of Memphis.

Police identified the car they were looking for as a 1990s, gold or tan Mercury Grand Marquis. They described it as a "vehicle of interest."
