Authorities say that Barry Blevins, the man wanted in connection with the Oct. 11 murder of former Kansas State football player David Garrett, was arrested early Wednesday morning, along with one other person.
Garrett was murdered around 3 a.m. on Oct. 11 during a fight outside of the Lavish Lounge in the 3600 block of West 117th Street. Garrett, 26, was there for a friends birthday party. According to sources, the fight broke out over an old grudge. Cell phone video taken during the fight shows people shoving, pushing and trying to break it up. Near the end of the video, someone warned that a pistol was pulled out. Garrett was shot after the video stopped.
Garrett electrified the crowds as a defensive back at Kansas State, and was MVP of the team in his senior year, 2012. He was lightning quick, but a bit small for the NFL. He had been playing arena football for the Kansas City Renegades and working as a corrections officer at the juvenile detention center in the off season.
