Community activist Christopher 2X, with Game-Changers, has been in touch with close friends of Grundy all morning and confirms with WHAS11 that Grundy died in the domestic dispute. "Several sports sources, those involved in local Louisville athletics, and also individuals and friends who play with Anthony {Grundy} confirm that he was the victim in the Russell neighborhood homicide," Christopher 2X said.

According to the Jefferson County coroner, 40-year-old Grundy sustained multiple forced injuries to the body.

The suspects were still on the scene when police arrived. They were taken into custody, but no charges have been filed according to Dwight Mitchell.

Indiana University coach Arch Miller posted about Grundy’s passing on Twitter Thursday night.

“Absolute Warrior, one the most fearless I have ever been around,” Miller said.

In June, Grundy was charged in a fatal hit-and-run in Louisville. He pleaded not guilty.
