A charity founded in remembrance of former Texas Tech basketball star Andre Emmett held its first basketball camp Saturday, nearly two years after he was fatally shot in Dallas. Oliver Family Charities hosted a basketball day camp for 40 children ages 8-13 Saturday at the Moorland Family YMCA at Oak Cliff. Emmett, who played for the Red Raiders from 2000-04 and professionally in the NBA and overseas from 2004-12, was shot and killed outside his Dallas home in September 2019.

More than 1,000 people attended his wake and funeral, mourning a beloved basketball player who was born and raised in Dallas and had celebrated his 37th birthday less than a month before. BIG3 Founder Ice Cube attended, as did Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman — a BIG3 coach who was scheduled to take Dré to a doctor’s appointment the day he was murdered — and NBA champion and BIG3 player Stephen Jackson, who spoke on behalf of the league. Others attending included former NBA players Josh Howard and Kenyon Martin (the latter of whom was a hometown friend and former New Jersey Nets teammate), as well as classmates, teammates and coaches from his alma maters, Carter High and Texas Tech. Childhood and neighborhood friends were there as well.

Detectives with the Dallas Police Department identified Michael Lucky, 29, and Keith Johnson, 32, as the men responsible for Dré’s death. According to reports, Dallas homicide detectives obtained capital murder warrants for their arrests on Saturday. Johnson, who is currently in jail on unrelated charges, was also charged with capital murder. Lucky turned himself in at Jack Evans Police Headquarters Monday afternoon. That news, while welcome, provides little comfort to Oliver. “I am glad they are off the street, but no, that doesn’t give me closure,” she said. “Once things get going and a trial starts, that will just open up wounds again. There is no closure.”
Two men, one of whom is on the run, are facing capital murder charges in connection with the fatal shooting of professional basketball player and former Texas Tech basketball standout Andre Emmett. Capital murder warrants were obtained Saturday for the arrests of 29-year-old Michael Lucky and 32-year-old Keith Johnson, police said. Johnson is currently jailed on unrelated charges and his bond will be set by a magistrate. Lucky remains at-large.
