A 13-year-old boy was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting last weekend after a football practice.
Additionally, a 20-year-old coach who had been in the vehicle with the boy, and several other people, was shot 10 times. He had been driving to shield the children from the gunfire.
The shooting occured as the coach and boys had finished a football tryout at the Legends Center and Gymnasium in Jacksonville, FL.
Besides the 13-year-old boy, Prince Holland, being shot and killed, an 11-year-old boy was seriously wounded, along with the injured coach.
“Inside the vehicle during the shooting were five victims ranging from 11 to 20 years old. Two of these were not injured during the shooting while three of the victims in the vehicle sustained serious injuries to include a 13 year old that died at the scene,” the sheriff’s office noted.
Authorities are still looking for the shooter. The coach, who has been able to talk to detectives, told authorities that he doesn’t know who that person is.
Investigators are also questioning the surviving teens to try to get more answers. They are reviewing evidence from the scene and camera footage.
