    I think some of these people putting their little "thoughts" on & being RUDE about it doesn't need to go on here. Yeah he might of been out what yall call "late" but that doesn't give YOU the right to put the parents down or even him. Did YOU know him? Because the way some of you are talking its like you dont but yet your trying to say something negative & you shouldn't be. Quille was a friend of mine, who i was close with at a time. I then moved away & then he moved to Sherman. We were still really good friends. I'll miss him.....

    UPDATE: I got to see him this afternoon at the hospital in Dallas...6/28/07... Shaquille has always been a kindred determined spirit and he will fight to overcome his paralysis...Currently he has no feeling in his legs, but he is active with his hands, arms, and is very alert...He smiles, complains, and interacts just like normal with his family and friends who are being a very strong and supportive for his cause...It is sad/frustrating/scary to see such a young person who had so much potential and room to grow have to deal with a setback such as this. I do believe his life has changed forever, but Shaquille will now have to make goals and be determined to achieve them. Love you kid. I understand the negative parenting comments that are being spoken, but after being a teacher for 5 years...I can attest that many a kid with good parents often make bad choices and vice versa...and mom was doing all she could to care for her children in the right manner...and she does feel slightly guilty, so at this time I would ask that your comments towards her be thoughtful and supportive, not negative..The family is very affected by this altercation..THANKS and continue to pray for him, his family, and the rest of our Grayson County youths that believe this is the right way to live...

    As a teacher of this young boy, this story hits very close to me. I hope a lesson can be learned from this not only by him, but by the many other young kids out there who are gangsta wannabes...you know who you are, you probably know who I am, and that I got your back no matter what, but that I believe many of you are also on the same foolish paths to nowhere that he is/was on. I had many conversations with him last year about this type of lifestyle with him and the direction where his life was heading. I do not know what the future holds for him now, but I hope that he can recover and turn his life around. Hopefully, I will get to see him today to let him know that while dissappointed in him being out this late and his continuing to be in the "wrong places at the wrong time" that I still love him and will try to help in any way I can. I can also update that the preliminary word is that he is paralyzed from the waist down. I hope to find out that the paralisys(sp??)[math teacher] is only temporary...Thanks and keep him and the other young people of Grayson County in your prayers

    This young man is lucky he didn't pay for being out this late & being at the wrong place with his life. Hopefully, he'll recover and be able to tell authorities who shot him. "Not ratting" on the shooter is stupid, and allows the punk to stay free to commit other crimes. Hopefluuy this kid will wise up and stay the heck away from this type of people.

    There is a war right here in our hometowns. Its young men and women who think that being associated with a gang provides status and respect. Never giving a single thought that one single action can change the course of so many other people's lives. We should pray for both families because they will face trials and tribulations they never thought they would. For the young man's family that was shot, pray for healing and knowledge that his life was spared for a purpose. For the one who pulled the trigger and those involved, pray that knowledge and conviction be placed on their heart. Life is precious and should always be treated as it was intended, a gift from God. No words, actions or disrespect is worth taking another's right to live or have a normal life away from them.

    just remember that this could also so be a innocent bystander.as a father my heart goes out to the parents of this child after all this is a child. i also agree that this child should have been in the house at this time,but no one deserves to be shot in the back. we all need to go back to the old days and start watching over for these kids let's all be our brother keeepers.

    Yes where are the parents this 15 yr old did not need to be out at night and I believe we need to have the cops pick up these kids when they are out past curfew. I have a 16 yr old and he has to be home by midnight and my 15 yr old by 11 but i can assure you there are not walking the streets with guns SHAME ON THE PARENTS

    If this was gang related I say "It's natures way of weeding out the fools" What was a 15 year old kid doing out at 12:30 am on a Monday? I'm sure he had just left bible study.
