LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) — Police in southeast Arkansas have identified a suspect in a drive-by shooting that killed a University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff women’s basketball player and injured her brother.

Lake Village Police Chief Percy Wilburn says authorities are searching for 41-year-old Octavius Easterling in connection with Monday’s shooting death of Sierra’Li Wade. Authorities say Wade’s brother was wounded in the shooting and is in stable condition.

Wilburn says the shooting occurred at a basketball court in Lake Village, which was Wade’s hometown.

Wade, an 18-year-old freshman walk-on guard, was also serving in UAPB’s ROTC program. Arkansas-Pine Bluff coach Dawn Brown described Wade on Tuesday as the teammate who “would always make you laugh.”
