McRoyal shooting investigated

LOS ANGELES – Police detectives were working Monday to determine a motive and find the killer of a University of Idaho football player who was shot to death at a weekend party.

Ken McRoyal, 22, a wide receiver from Carson, was killed early Sunday while attending a photo shoot to promote a new woman’s clothing line, police Detective Victor Marin said.

“Whether he was invited or not, we don’t know,” Marin said.

Early police reports indicated McRoyal was shot when he got into an argument with a group of people, but Marin said investigators hadn’t confirmed whether there was any altercation.

A second man was wounded and treated at a hospital.

Investigators planned to interview the 40 to 50 people who attended the party, Marin said.
