High school quarterback in Louisiana dead after shooting at party

A high school quarterback in Louisiana was shot and killed early Saturday morning, according to WBRZ.

Police say Bryant Lee, an 18-year-old senior at McKinley High School, was attending a graduation party when he was shot in the head at around 1:50 a.m. on Saturday.

Two others also suffered minor injuries.

Bryant was set to graduate in the coming days with a 3.5 GPA.

Baton Rouge Police are still gathering details of the shooting.

“This was not a young man who was in and out of trouble or some gang thing,” McKinley football coach Ken Hilton told The Advocate. “It was a kid who in my eyes was a good kid. Everything he said was ‘no, sir’ or ‘yes, sir’ and shook your hand.”

Lee survived a shooting six months ago after being hit with a bullet as an innocent bystanderduring a drive-by shooting.

Lee planned to attend Southern University in the fall with hopes of making the football team as a walk on.
