Frederick Douglass High School football team is mourning after former player, Michael Proctor, was shot and killed Friday morning

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn said 17-year-old Michael Proctor died at about 5:50 a.m. last Friday from a gunshot wound.

Police are looking into the death and believe it is a homicide. They are looking for more information to the shooting.

This is the second young person killed in Lexington in the past two weeks. 18 year old Mykel Waide died from a gunshot wound a week earlier.

The Frederick Douglass football team tweeted a tribute to Proctor that said he played for the team last season.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of a Bronco. Prayers to his family, fellow students and scholars, and both Douglass and Carter G staffs. Michael was a member of the Bronco football team from 2017-2019. We’ll always remember you, 25. @coachnatemcpeek— Douglass Football (@FDouglassFB) August 21, 2020

Lexington Police ask that anyone with information please contact (859) 258-3600.

Please keep the family and friends in prayer, during this tough time.
