The school had counselors on-hand for students their first day back after the shooting. 

"I had first period with Ray and he sat directly next to me, so as soon as I walked in and he wasn’t there, I couldn’t do nothing but cry, just to know that he wasn’t coming back," Ronald Phillips said. 


The 17-year-old was shot Saturday on S. Eden Street near City Springs Elementary/Middle school.

His friends said he was practicing for Monday night's lacrosse championship game before he was shot and killed.

"He was a hard-working young man. I don’t believe he deserved what he got," Phillips said. "He lost his life to a senseless act."


Glasgow played football with Phillips and was a captain of the lacrosse team. He had dreams of playing in college. Now his team has to play without him and though they say he will be missed on the field during the championship game, he will be on everyone's minds.


"Just try to play through him honestly, because I know how much he wanted to play in the championship and beat Mervo at that. We wanted a rematch from last year. Now we want a win for him," teammate Keon Johnson said.


His friends described him as a selfless young man who always helped others.

Police said Glasgow was not the intended target in the shooting and no arrest has been made. 

According to officials, the suspect drove a white Nissan Altima away from the scene.
