Syncere Trice is accused of killing 16-year-old De’mari Jackson Sunday evening. Jackson was shielding a friend from the gunfire when he was shot and killed.

Syncere Trice was one of the most prolific football players in South Florida. The South Fort Myers football star was a beast on the football field and now he is facing murder charges.

According to police reports, De’Mari Jackson a 16-year-old student protecting a friend from bullets was shot and killed by Trice.

Trice was placed at the crime scene by three witnesses who told police he was the shooter.

An arrest report shows the shooting happened after a fight between two groups of girls who have been fighting each other for months.

Trice was a solid wide receiver and cornerback for South Fort Myers. No one wins in this situation. Trice will likely go to jail for the rest of his life and De’Mari and his family are broken because of a fight.

This needs to stop, it is so sad to hear about.
