According to the Shelby County Sheriff's office , 21-year-old Derrick Jackson attended the Whitehaven Classic Football Tournament at Whitehaven High School Saturday evening. As Jackson left the stadium, he was shot by an unknown gunman.

One student thinks fans should help prevent this kind of violence.

"(They come) out here trying to fight, be seen, looking for the wrong attention. It doesn't make any sense," stated DeMarcus Jones.
