A 15-year-old football player from Minnesota with Dreams of playing college football shot and killed

Jahmari Rice’s grandfather wanted to know “How could this happen to his grandson while he was at school?”. That is a very great question because an entire community in Minnesota is shocked after the fifteen-year-old football player was shot outside his school.

Jahmari Rice, 15, was shot outside of South Education Center in Richfield Tuesday and later died at the hospital. A 17-year-old was also shot and remains in critical condition.

City police say the shooting happened during an altercation between students. Fernando Valdez-Alvarez, 18, and Alfredo Rosario Solis, 19, have both been charged with three counts of second-degree murder in Hennepin County.

Please keep the Rice family in your prayers during this tough time.
