According to a new report, Phil Urban, who played for Post University in Connecticut, passed away in the Hopewell Valley Nature Preserve after being shot by an unknown individual.
Prior to his death, Phil Urban, a 6-foot-6 basketball player who attended the exclusive Pennington School, played for Post University in Connecticut.
The Manalapan resident was shot on Saturday at 7 o’clock in the Hopewell Valley Nature Preserve, according to a statement from the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
Police said they discovered him “slumped over” in the expensive vehicle’s driver’s seat when it was parked alongside a path.
He was taken to Trenton’s Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he was later confirmed dead, according to the authorities.
Detectives looking into murder are looking into the shooting death of Urban. There have been no detentions.
Although the exact circumstances surrounding his death are still unknown, investigators have stated that they think he was going to meet someone at the Hopewell park.
Post University just welcomed Urban to the squad on a basketball scholarship.
