Kennesaw State starting point guard Kamiyah Street was arrested this week in Atlanta on multiple murder charges, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Street was arrested on Thursday on eight counts, per the report, including murder, three counts of felony murder, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. 

Her arrest stems from the July 16 death of 21-year-old Nashiem Hubbard-Etienne, whose body was found in the parking garage of an apartment complex just south of downtown Atlanta. Hubbard-Etienne was “the victim of a targeted shooting,” an Atlanta police spokesman told the Journal-Constitution. 

The homicide investigation is still ongoing.

“We were made aware Thursday evening that Kamiyah Street of the KSU women’s basketball team was arrested and is being held, pending charges,” Kennesaw State assistant athletic director David Beall told the Journal-Constitution. “The individual has been suspended indefinitely from all women’s basketball team and athletic activities. Neither the university nor the athletic department have any additional information at this time.” 

Street, a junior and Atlanta native, averaged 21 points and five rebounds while playing 37 minutes per contest in four games this season for the Owls. She dropped 32 points in their win against Georgia Southern last week, and scored her 1,000-career point earlier this year, too.
