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.
