TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — A current Indiana University student and former Carmel High School football player was shot early Friday and died early Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

According to a report from the Tuscaloosa Police Department, officers were called to the 1700 block of University Boulevard around 1:30 a.m. Friday on report of a shooting. Officers arrived and found a 19-year-old man had been shot once. The victim, Schuyler Bradley, was taken to a hospital, where he died early Saturday, police said.

Investigators with the Tuscaloosa Police Department's Violent Crimes Unit said Bradley and a 22-year-old man were involved in an argument that led up to the shooting.

The suspect has been charged with murder and was released after posting a $150,000 bond, police said.

The shooting happened in a student-centric bar area close to the campus of the University of Alabama, police said.

A spokesman for Indiana University released the following statement:

Our thoughts are with the family and with his friends at IU after this terribly tragic circumstance. Student affairs staff has been in contact with the family as they navigate this difficult time. We’re providing counseling to his fellow fraternity members and encourage any other students who need assistance to contact Counseling and Psychological Services.
