Family identifies shooting victim as McKinley High football player
BATON ROUGE- A McKinley High School student has been shot during an apparent drive-by shooting outside of a home on 73rd Ave near Pembroke Street.
Around 6:30 p.m., family members said Bryant Lee, 17, was shot in the leg and rushed to Our Lady of The Lake Hospital.
"He was just standing out in the street talking to his friends about their new baby when the shooting started," Lee's aunt, Annette Grinner, said.
Lee, a senior at Mckinley and the starting quarterback on the school's football team, is expected to be okay, family members said.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing a car pull up to the group on 73rd right before shots were fired.
Grinner says she's unsure if Bryant was the intended target.
Police are investigating.
