Tragic news regarding former Chattanooga Mocs basketball player Stanley Lawrence.
Lawrence, a long time Atlanta police officer, was shot and killed early Wednesday.
His wife has been charged in the murder.
The 58-year-old Lawrence had been with the Atlanta police force since since 1990.
The 6’8 Lawrence was dubbed the ‘Jesup Giant’ when he played for Chattanooga since he hailed from Jesup, Georgia.
He played for UTC in the early 80’s, and he held the school’s career blocked shot record for over thirty years.
