Ex-Florida State receiver Tamorrion Terry indicted in 2018 nightclub shooting

Former Florida State wide receiver Tamorrion Terry was indicted last week on a felony murder charge related to a 2018 shooting in Georgia.

Terry is one of 11 people charged in the death of 21-year-old Za’Quavia Smith, who was shot and killed at Studio 2.0 nightclub in Ashburn, Georgia on the night of June 30, 2018. In total, seven people were shot at the scene. 

Up until last week’s indictments, only one person — Jontavious Coley — had been arrested and charged with felony murder for the incident.

At the time of the shooting, Terry was entering his redshirt freshman season on Florida State’s football team. In three seasons as a Seminole, he hauled in 18 touchdowns and 2,221 receiving yards, including 1,188 receiving yards during the 2019 season, the second-highest mark in the ACC.

An underwhelming 2020 season torpedoed Terry’s draft stock and the 23-year-old went undrafted. He signed with the Seattle Seahawks as a free agent in May, only to be waived on June 30 with a non-injury designation.
