Jackson State Football Recruit Shot and Killed

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — A new recruit to the Jackson State University football program was shot and killed in Dallas late Monday night. 17-year-old Leroy Hawkins was in the passenger seat of a 2007 red Pontiac when he and the driver were approached by a suspect and an argument ensued. The suspect, who knew both the driver and Hawkins, pulled a gun, according to local television station WFAA. The driver of the vehicle was able to run away but Hawkins was shot multiple times. He was transported to a local hospital but died of his injuries. Hawkins was a standout offensive lineman at DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas., and had graduated just last Wednesday. Hawkins would have turned 18 next month.
