A star player for Kennesaw State University’s women’s basketball team has been suspended indefinitely after she was arrested and charged with murder in connection to the fatal shooting of an Atlanta man.

Kamiyah Street was taken into custody on Thursday for her alleged role in the July 16 fatal shooting of Nashiem Hubbard-Etienne, Officer Anthony Grant with the Atlanta Police Department confirms to PEOPLE.

Hubbard-Etienne, 21, was found dead in the parking deck of the Heritage Station apartments in Atlanta around 1:44 a.m. over the summer, Grant said.

Investigators believe he was “the victim of a targeted shooting” and have named five suspects in the homicide, including Street, 20.

Street now faces eight counts, including three counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of murder, criminal attempt to commit armed robbery and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, according to Fulton County Sheriff’s Office Inmate records.

Grant said the decision to charge Street was made by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office and that the investigation “remains active and ongoing” with no other information currently available.

At this time, it is unclear if Street has retained legal representation.
