FLORENCE, S.C. (WBTW) — A Wilson High School football player died Sunday morning in a “senseless crime,” according to Coach Rodney Mooney.
“My heart is shattered, angry, hurt and confused,” Mooney said in a tweet.
Florence 1 Schools later identified the teen as Joshua McPherson, 17, who was killed in a shooting Sunday morning near Coastal Carolina University.
“I’m tired of the senseless crimes that take place in our black communities and the excuses used to justify them,” Mooney said in a tweet. “At no point should a life be taken, especially a teenage life.”
