Grief counselors will be at Springfield Central High School this week after the shooting death of a captain of the school''s basketball team.
Nineteen-year-old Mario Hornsby, Jr., was gunned down early Saturday morning after attending a dance at a local nightclub. Investigators do not believe Hornsby was the target of the shooting, and no arrests have been reported.
The school''s basketball coach, Mike Labrie, says Hornsby was a quiet leader who commanded respect from his peers and from adults.
Close friend and teammate Preye Preboye says the team plans to wear shirts with Hornsby''s name and photo, and are planning a summer basketball tournament in his honor.
Assistant principal Tad Tokarz says Hornsby was planning to enter a prep school program at Brandeis University this fall.
