Man arrested in former K-State football player’s death

CLEVELAND – Authorities say the man suspected of fatally shooting a former Kansas State University football player outside a Cleveland nightclub has been arrested in northeast Ohio.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 30-year-old Barry Blevins of East Cleveland was arrested early Wednesday in Cleveland.

Blevins was sought on an aggravated murder warrant after the October shooting of 26-year-old David Garrett. Police say Garrett was struck in the chest when Blevins fired into a crowd after a fight that began in a Cleveland nightclub spilled outside.

Garrett earned all-Big 12 honorable mention honors as a Kansas State defensive back in 2010 and 2011. He graduated from Thomas W. Harvey High School in Painesville, east of Cleveland and played arena football in Kansas City in 2013.

No attorney information for Blevins was available Thursday.
