Brittney Simpson says her 18-year-old brother Marquis Sutton had a bright future.
Simpson says, "He wanted to go to college to play pro football and that was his main thing that was what he was focused on, going to college to play pro football and to get out of Fresno."
But that future has been cut short. Police say 20-year-old Terrance Lee shot and killed Marquis last night. According to witnesses, Marquis was inside Lee's apartment with three other friends. They told police Lee was teasing Marquis and pointing a gun in his face.
Chief Jerry Dyer, Fresno Police Department says, "This is not an accident. This is an intentional act in which the suspect in this case not only once but twice, pulled the trigger of the firearm while pointing it at Marquis Sutton and the second time is when that round discharged, struck Marquis in the upper back, exited his neck and killed him."
Police say Lee then dragged Marquis's body to the sidewalk. He later died at the hospital.
Simpson says, "He was a good kid, he just stayed out of trouble he stayed out of peoples way. He wasn't in nobody else's business, that's why I don't know what happened last night."
Marquis was an student and football player at Edison High School.
Michael Hanson, Fresno Unified School District Superintendent says,"It is tragic when we lose a student in any way, in a murder in our city especially with one of our youth, I think is especially tragic. It's something as a city we shouldn't stand for, it happens too frequently."
Marquis was one of twelve children. His family knows this pain all too well. His older brother, Marvin, was also shot and killed in June.
Simpson says, "I can't really say it's unfair because it's in the man above's hands but he knew what he was doing, but it's not fair to his family. "I just wish that everybody would just stop all this madness and get right, instead of all this foolishness, it's crazy."
Friends and family will be holding a candlelight vigil for Marquis Tuesday night in front of the Ashmark Arms apartment complex.
According to police, Terrance Lee has no prior criminal history. Police also tell us they did find marijuana and methamphetamine inside Lee's apartment.
