Sad news out of Tennessee and a courageous one as well. 15 year old HS football player Zaevion Dobson was killed Friday as he shielded three girls from gunfire. Never like to see young people lose their life so early.

According to NYDailyNews:

Zaevion Dobson was with a few friends Thursday in his northern Knoxville neighborhood when a group of men approached them and began firing randomly into the crowd.

Dobson’s brother Zach told WBIR-TV that he was among the group sitting on a porch just after 10 p.m. when they saw the men walking up to them.

“I’m shocked. I’m really just shocked. I can’t believe it, can’t get it across my head,” Zack Dobson said. “We were just sitting on the porch chillin’, and we see these random dudes walking up.”

Zaevion jumped on top of three girls to protect them from the gunfire. He was the only one hit.

Courage. Simply courageous. Gave his life to save 3 others.

Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said the violence started miles away when a 46-year-old woman named Lisa Perry was shot while inside her apartment.

She is expected to survive.

Rausch said Perry’s 23-year-old son, Brandon Perry, and several other men then drove to the neighborhood where Zaevion lived and “randomly fired multiple times” in a twisted retribution for the earlier bloodshed.

Brandon Perry was later found to have been shot after he crashed a car into another apartment. He died from his injuries on Friday morning.
