BRISTOL, Tenn. — King University student DeShaun Greer had a smile you would never forget. At 6 feet, 5 inches tall, the former basketball player was an intimidating presence, but the day after he was shot and killed in Johnson City, Tenn., friends and coworkers described him as a genuine, good-natured person.

Police say Greer was shot and killed in a parking lot outside an eatery in Johnson City early Sunday. A man has been charged in Greer’s death as well as in the injury of three others, including Greer’s brother, Jamison Greer.
