DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit police say two people are in custody related to the shooting of a 20-year-old University of Michigan – Dearborn student last week.

Kabria Arnold, 20, who played softball for the university, was killed on Nov. 10. Her body was found lying in the street in the area of Pilgrim and Bentler streets.

Arnold was a student in the Fall of 2018 and only enrolled for one semester, according to the Vice Chancellor for External Relations at UM – Dearborn.

The UM – Dearborn website also stated the Southfield resident entered her first season with the softball team as a junior.

Police say Arnold was found unresponsive with multiple gunshot wounds to her body. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

According to police, they arrested a 24-year-old woman on Monday morning and a 28-year-old man on Tuesday morning. They believe that the man is the shooter.

Right now, police are saying that the investigation is ongoing, so they can't release many details, but they do say it appears to be domestic in nature.

The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help with funeral expenses.
