JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Family and friends of Raines High School football player, Rashaud Fields, confirm he was killed Monday night in a shooting in the Highlands neighborhood.
The shooting was reported to police around 10 p.m. Monday, just hours after Fields graduated from the school.
When officers arrived at a home on Pine Estates Road, they found the teen with a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital but did not survive.
A neighbor tells News4JAX that there was a graduation party happening and there were a lot of cars on the street. That neighbor did say he did not hear a shooting or a lot of noise.
Family members said on Tuesday, “He was a good kid. All he did was go to school, play football, and take care of his grandma.”
They added, “He had a full ride scholarship to Keiser University in Fort Lauderdale.”
