    A former East High School football player who was shot during a game last month was killed in another shooting Thursday night in East Akron, police said.

    Dee Arius Reese, 20, was found by Akron police with multiple gunshot wounds at about 10:40 p.m. Thursday in an apartment in the 1200 block of McMillan Circle. The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office, which confirmed his identity Friday afternoon, pronounced him dead at the scene.

    Police said a woman, 24, was shot in the foot and taken to a local hospital.

    Reese was one of two people shot during a Sept. 17 football game between East and Firestone at Ellet High School. Reese was shot in the arm then and a 40-year-old woman was hit in the leg.

    At the time, police said an unidentified male was in an argument with Reese before that male fired shots.

    Graduating in 2019, Reese played offensive and defensive line for East, making varsity all four years. Coach Marques Hayes said Reese was very talented.

    Hayes said the team won the City Series league title three of the four years Reese played. Reese had offers to play football in college, but Hayes said his mother's death presented a roadblock to that opportunity.

    'It broke him down when that happened,' Hayes said.

    Hayes said Reese was on track to earn the grades he needed to play, but his mother's death made that more difficult. Reese didn't have enough time to make up schoolwork once he was back on track, Hayes said.

    Reese was still able to play at one of the top junior colleges in the country, Hayes said, but a paperwork issue meant he couldn't play this season. Hayes said Reese had contacted him not too long ago and was still working for an opportunity to play at the collegiate level.

    Hayes said people knew Reese as a kindhearted and loyal person who cared for a lot of people in his life.

    This is not the first time tragedy has struck the East community, Hayes said, as violence has taken the lives of several young people across Akron this year.

    Hayes said those past incidents add to this tragedy.

    'It just puts you at a loss for words, because they're supposed to be the young ones of the future, and these things keep happening,' Hayes said.

    Police have not said if the Sept. 17 and Thursday shootings are connected. No arrests have been announced in either shooting.

    In a news release Friday morning, police said no suspects have been identified in Thursday's shooting.

    In the Sept. 17 shooting, police described the shooter as a male between 17 and 20 years old, wearing a tie-dye colored shirt, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. Police said he fled the scene.

    Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Akron Police Department Detective Bureau at 330-375-2490 or 330-375-2Tip or the Summit County Crime Stoppers at 330-434-COPS.

    Looks like he has a newborn and a close friend/relative? who died on 10/5. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/oh...Eix8Y92iol6Ldk

    It's hard for me to believe that he wasn't being targeted for some reason. Two shootings involving him within a month of each other? Doesn't pass the sniff test for me.

    Exactly. Someone really wanted him dead.

    I'm thinking maybe some type of illegal activity. I have worked hard my entire life and never had as much cash to count and flash as seen in one picture and a video. It wasn't clear what was in the baggie by the stove. In another pic, there was a gun. Not to judge, but I think one pic was flashing a gang symbol. Perhaps he crossed someone while financing his rap career and family.
