Former ECU football player Domonique Lennon is dead after being shot on Friday night in Raleigh.
According to reports, Lennon was shot multiple times in the parking lot of a Bahama Breeze. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the crime.
Lennon, who played at ECU from 2011 to 2015, was just 24 years old.
