Four years after Parkland, gunfire on school grounds reaches troubling new peaks
Fifteen-year-old Jahmari Rice loved all sports. He wrestled. He played basketball. But football was his passion, and he dreamed of playing in the NFL.
He had just started at a new school in Minnesota when he was fatally shot outside the building during lunch last week.
"Fighting for these babies, man, we are losing our babies," Jahmari's father, Cortez Rice, said through tears Wednesday at his son's funeral. "Our babies should not have to go through this. We shouldn’t have to go through this."
