NEW ORLEANS - The father of an 18-year-old killed in a drive-by shooting in front of a New Orleans high school says his son was in Tulane University's culinary catering program and was planning to join the Army Reserves.
    
Lawrence Williams Jr. said Lawrence Williams IV had never been in trouble.
    
He said Wednesday that his son and a friend wanted to see Tuesday night's basketball game at Edna Karr High School, where he graduated two years ago.
    
The two were unable to get in.
    
Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said investigators don't know a motive for the shooting.
    
The coroner's office said in an email that the other victim's identity had not been confirmed.
    
Williams talked to Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Wednesday after the mayor and others met with students at Karr, a college prep school.
    
Williams then spoke briefly to reporters
