BATON ROUGE - WBRZ has learned that an LSU Softball player graduated from Santa Fe High School, the site of a deadly mass shooting Friday, just last year.

According to LSU Athletics, freshman pitcher Shelbi Sunseri earned numerous accolades during her time at Santa Fe High, including four-time District MVP honors, three-time Academic All-District selection, a Gatorade Player of the Year nomination, and four-time Galveston County Player of the Year honors.

Friday morning, her former high school was the target of a mass shooting that killed 10 people. 

The 17-year-old suspected shooter has been taken into custody.

Sunseri's teammates say she will be wearing a ribbon bearing Santa Fe High's colors during Friday's softball game to honor those killed at her old school.
