More than 300 people attended a vigil on Tuesday night for a 16-year-old who was shot and killed in Texas.
Christopher Mosley, who played football at Timber Creek High School (Fort Worth, Texas) in 2017, was killed around 4 p.m. CST on Saturday night, according to WFAA8.
The police department did not provide further information to the outlet about the incident.
A family member released a statement to WFAA8 that said Mosley was shot at a house with two friends.
“On November 17th Christopher Mosley was shot while with two friends at a house in North Lake, TX. We do not know at this time what the complete details of the incident were. We do not wish to make any conclusions at this time. Matt and Penny, his grandparents, Christopher, his father, and Jada his sister are all heartbroken at the loss of this kind hearted boy that they were blessed to have in their lives for 16 years.
My partner in crime, My better half, My baby brother is now an angel. He was taken way too soon, but he’s flyin high with our momma. Rest easy Christopher! I love you so so much!
