Suspect In Shootings Of Football Players Surrenders

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The man wanted in the shooting of two Michigan football players, including one northeast Ohio native, has surrendered to police.

Joshua White, 18, turned himself in at 9 p.m. Tuesday, just hours after a warrant charging him with assault with intent to murder was issued.

Sophomore defensive back Markus Curry was shot in the back, and junior linebacker Carl Diggs, who is from Warren, Ohio, and starred at Warren G. Harding High School, was shot in the leg, after a fight at an off-campus party Saturday.

Both players were treated at University of Michigan Hospitals and released. Doctors have not yet decided whether to remove a bullet still lodged near Curry's spine.

Police responded to reports of a fight at the party late Friday. The fight was over when officers arrived, but they broke up the party of about 100 people.

After officers left, Curry and Diggs were standing in the street when one of the suspects from the fight fired a gun wildly, Ann Arbor Police Department Sgt. Michael Logghe said.
