*Roger Randolph, the 35-year-old brother of Kings forward Zach Randolph, was shot and killed outside of an Indiana bar early Saturday morning.

His body was found in the parking lot of Hop’s Blues Room in Marion. Police say no arrests have been made.

Meanwhile, the bar where Roger’s body was found caught on fire early Sunday, less than 24 hours after Randolph’s body was found fatally shot there, and investigators belive the fire was intentionally set.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze that caused an estimated $20,000 in damage, according to ESPN. Marion Fire Department Investigator Brandon Eckstein says the cause of the fire was arson.

Zach Randolph was a star player in Marion and now plays for the Sacramento Kings.

Authorities didn’t immediately say whether they believe Randolph’s death and the fire are related.
