Ohio Dominican University has been featured on NFL Draft Diamonds in the past for their several small school players who were attempting to live out their dreams. Today, we mourn the loss of ODU wide receiver converted to defensive back Jonte Tinsley who was shot and killed this weekend at a sweet sixteen birthday party, where 80-100 people were present.
Tinsley an 18 year old Sophomore at ODU was shot in the neck and died at the Grandview Medical center.
Tinsley is a Dayton native, who was a solid wide receiver in high school and played last season as a defensive back for ODU.
The police department have identified a juvenile as a “very strong person of interest”.
Please keep the Tinsley family in your prayers. Rest in Peace Jonte.
