The student at Lower Richland High School in South Carolina has his own account on MaxPreps, a website tracking high school sports statistics for “hometown heroes.”
On May 10, 2018, Amon Da'Shun Diamonte Rice, 17, was trying to settle a fight in a church parking lot, his mother said, when he was shot in the upper body. He died two days later.
