Terrance Jackson, 15-Year-Old Florida High School Football Player, Shot Dead in Front of His Parents After Funeral for His Grandfather

A teenager killed in a shooting after his grandfather’s funeral has been identified as a high school football player.  Terrance Jackson, a 15-year-old defensive end at Deerfield Beach High School, died in Saturday’s shooting, which erupted during a family fight, Riviera Beach police spokeswoman AJ Walker said Monday.

Royce Freeman, 47, also died at the scene. A woman received injuries that were not believed to be life threatening.

No arrests had been made, but Walker said detectives had leads.

Tronicia and Terrance Jackson Sr. told CBS Miami that they witnessed their son die.

“When I got there, I started taking his bow tie off and he was looking at me and I said, ‘Terrance, just breathe, Okay?'” said Tronicia. “He shook his head. I said ‘mommy loves you, just listen to me. Don’t leave me OK? Just breathe, baby’ and he shook his head.”

Terrance Jackson Sr had this to say: “At that moment, his whole life flashed in front of me. I can remember him being born, I was there. And to see him take his last breath… it’s just too much.”
