A 17-year-old star football and lacrosse athlete was pronounced dead at a Baltimore hospital after a shooting on Saturday night.
Antwone Glasgow III was a standout at Baltimore City College high school, where he was expected to lead his team in the Division A lacrosse championship on Monday night, reported the Baltimore Sun.
An 18-year-old was also injured in the shooting, which happened about 6 p.m. near the City Springs Elementary/Middle School field, police said.
Four other people were shot on Sunday, two of whom were killed.
Glasgow’s coach, Anthony “Merc” Ryan, said the 17-year-old had been promoted to the role of lacrosse team captain in just the second season of playing.
“Ray got the boys ignited. He got a fire under them,” Ryan told the Baltimore Sun. “You see the enthusiasm he had for it all.”
His father, Ray Glasgow Jr., 35, said Ray III was bound for greatness.
“He was a better me. I used to tell him that all the time. If I could be anybody in the world I would want to be him, because the sky was the limit for him. He was an unbelievable kid,” Glasgow Jr. said.
Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa said Monday that Glasgow was not the intended target of the shooting. De Sousa added that the teen was not involved in any sort of criminal activity and was an innocent victim of a tragedy.
Baltimore police issued a statement Sunday at about noon that they are seeking the drivers of a white vehicle, which police believe is a Nissan Altima, in connection with the shooting.
