Shortly before midnight on New Year's Eve, a group of young men had tried to break into a party at a rented apartment on Airbnb. A fight broke out and shots were fired, leaving three dead and two wounded, according to local media reports.
The brother of the gymnast, a soldier, is the only person implicated for the moment in this case.
" Do not talk to me "
Simone Biles, a four-time Olympic champion, spent her early years in foster care, her mother suffering from addictions, before being adopted with her youngest sister by their maternal grandfather.
In January 2018, she revealed that she was one of the victims of Larry Nassar, former doctor of the women's gymnastics team, who was behind one of the most serious scandals in the history of American sports, convicted of hundreds of assaults committed for two decades.
She did not comment directly on her brother's troubles, but wrote on Twitter: "I'm trying to digest, do not talk to me".
