The only good news about this is police have at least one of the suspected shooters in custody.
Hero High School Football Player Killed Shielding Girls From Gunfire
Police believe that the shooting was random.
The Knoxville, Tennessee, community is reeling after a high school football player was killed shielding three girls from gunfire.
Zaevion Dobson, 15, jumped on top of the girls to protect them as gunmen opened fire in their neighborhood at around 10 p.m. Thursday, local news station WATE reported. The girls were uninjured.
Known as “Zae,” the teen played on the Fulton High School football team with his brother, Zack.
“He came home from school, did his homework, watched film, watched documentaries of it, players. That’s what he loved — football,” Zack told news station WVLT.
His coach, Rob Black, described Zae as a well-liked leader.
Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch told ESPN that investigators believe the shootings were gang-related, but don’t think Zaevion and his friends were specifically targeted.
“Unfortunately, they picked a random group of young men and women who were just hanging out and trying to prepare to celebrate the holiday,” Rausch said.
Rausch explained that the shootings kicked off when someone shot and wounded 46-year-old Lisa Perry, who was inside her apartment. Perry’s 23-year-old son, Brandon Perry, and others then allegedly drove to the neighborhood where Zaevion lived and began firing at random.
Brandon Perry was later found shot after crashing his car into an apartment, and died of his injuries.

Dear Mr BT:
With all due respect YOU are like “Joey Chin” on “Al Jezeera America”.
In her case she traveled to Chicago, did the obligatory mention that “Chicago Murder Rate 2015” exceeds 2014 and 2013, as her pretext go doing an indictment of the Chicago Police and Guns.
Zaevion Dobson was not killed from “Random Gunfire”!!!!
A group of “Street Pirate Adverse Community Experience Creators (SPACE Creators) were seeking revenge from a previous violent action. They saw a group of young Black teens who had NOTHING to do with their beef and OPENED FIRE UPON THEM, killing 15 year old Zaevion Dobson.
Mr BT – Where is the “Obama My Brother’s Keeper Program – Knoxville Chapter” to the rescue in the “Minority Report” like preeptive mitigation of Street Pirate Murders?
Do you just enjoy taking your Kodak Disc Camera to the local Wallgreens and demanding that they develop the pictures that you take of President Obama’s Social Justice programs?
Or are you seriously interested in mitigating the problems that plague the community that you troll votes for on behalf of the Progressives?

Flubberduckkie – You are way too stupid to understand your irrelevance to your choice topics, with your vision so clouded by the pants front and zipper of those Republican Gods your so eagerly give lip service.

Let us pretend for a second that your Homo-erotic fantasy that you paint at my expense is true.
In my case I am ONE BLACK MAN sucking “White Republican Weenie”.
I know that you didn’t do so well in Statistics 101 or Calculus when it came to PROPORTIONS, but how do you contrast “One Compromised Black Man” (ME) with the sight of BLACK AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS being compromised to perform fellatio upon White Liberals like Rachel Maddow, Tina Fey and Cher but then sell it to other Black people as “Black Equality In The Porn Industry” and calling it “Black Progress”?

Calculus has nothing to do with “proportions”, neither do statistics, Flubberduckkie…
Which might go a long way to explaining why you spent so many years in the 4th Grade math class.
The correct math relationship would be ratios and proportions.
As for your sexual knowledge…You missed that class entirely. If you have been performing fellatio on the women in your life…
Then the she you been doing that with, isn’t at least biologically a she.
You can come out of the closet now. No need to hide anymore!
You probably should stick to two syllable words.
