WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A Post University basketball player was killed over the weekend in New Jersey, the Waterbury university announced late Monday morning.

Phil Urban was shot in Manalapan, New Jersey.

“He loved his teammates,” Coach Marc Kuntz said in the written announcement. “He was kind of an under-the-radar joker. Liked to joke with the guys, keep them on their toes. Just a very nice young man who loved the game of basketball, loved being part of our program.”

Urban was a first-year student and forward on the team.

“The Post University community expresses its deepest condolences and sympathy to Phil’s family, friends, teammates, and all of those who loved him,” the university’s statement reads.

His body was found inside a Mercedes C300 at the Hopewell Valley Nature Preserve, according to the Mercer County prosecutor. Authorities believe that he planned to meet someone at the preserve, and was shot during the meeting.

No arrests have been made.

Post University counseling staff were on hand Monday to meet with the team.

“They brought them lunch, they did a great job,” Kuntz said. “At Post, our counseling team, our athletic trainers, all our coaches came. It was a really touching scene. They were all there for our guys. Post is a great place in that regard.”

For now, the focus is on supporting the team.

“There’s nothing we can do or say to fix this or help,” Kuntz said. “Just be there for support. While we were in Florida, my main goal was to make sure our players were supported. they lost a teammate, a brother, and they were devastated.”
