The Coppin State University baseball family is mourning a big loss for its head coach.
CSU head coach Sherman Reed Sr.’s son, Sherman Jr., was fatally shot in the head on Thursday night, according to WBALTV.com.
Sherman Jr. was one of two men to lose their lives on Thursday in four separate shootings in the city. He was 31 years old.
“Our deepest sympathies are with Coach Reed and his family,” the school said in a statement.
Reed Sr. recently completed his ninth year as Coppin’s head coach.
