The sports world is mourning the death of a college basketball player on Sunday night.
Phil Urban, 20, was reportedly found dead in his car over the weekend. Police are reportedly investigating the death as a possible homicide.
“The Manalapan native was shot around 7 p.m. Saturday at the Hopewell Valley Nature Preserve, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
Police said they found him “slumped over” in the driver’s seat of the luxury car, which was parked on a trail.
He was transported to Capital Health Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said,” the New York post reported on Sunday.
Urban, a tri-state area native, played collegiately at Post University in Connecticut.

“Prayers to him and his family and to my Post family wow,” one fan wrote.
“With a heavy heart we report on the untimely passing of Phil Urban,” NJ Hoops added.
Urban was a skilled forward, who’s reportedly dealt with some adversity over the years, but had shown major promise.
One of his ex-coaches tweeted earlier this year: “This kid has dealt with a lot of adversity in the last year and if I told you how he handled it, you’d be proud too!
“Super excited for Philly man— stayed humble, trusted the process and accomplished a goal!”
