Memorial held for long-time Cody High School basketball coach

Cody High School alumni are trying to come to grips with the apparent murder of a long-time basketball coach. 

Charles Knott was found shot to death in his car Tuesday night in the parking lot of his apartment complex on Detroit's west side.

A small gathering of former students planned a get together Thursday night at Cody to remember Coach Knott, which one former basketball player called a "legend." 

One former student says Coach Knott, who retired recently, was a positive influence on the students who played basketball for him.
