The 25-year-old former Clemson player revealed that upon hearing of the tragic death of Ja’Naiya Scott, he felt compelled to assist for her funeral.

“It could have been my little sister,” Lawson, who grew up 20 miles from Ja’Naiya’s hometown, told Greenville News on Wednesday.

“I’ve got a little sister around that age, and it could have been one of my family members,” he said.

Ja’Naiya was shot and killed on Sunday after someone entered her home in Anderson. She was shot more than 35 times, occurring at 1:30 a.m., according to the reports. Her 18-year-old sister and her 11-year-old cousin were both wounded, and remain in critical condition.
