North Texas high school football player shot and killed

DENTON, Texas (AP) - A high school football player has been killed in a shooting incident northwest of Dallas.

Multiple local media reports Sunday said 18-year-old Nathan Maki, starting fullback for Denton Guyer High School, was found dead in a pickup up truck in a field close to Bowie, Texas.

They cited Montague County Sheriff Paul Cunningham in reporting that police made the discovery after receiving a call around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

The Associated Press' calls to Cunningham weren't immediately returned. The cause of the shooting wasn't clear.

Denton Guyer won the Class 4A Division I state championship last season.

A statement posted on a team Website and on Facebook reads: "Our team, school, community, and most of all the family of Nate Maki, have suffered a great loss." It asks for supporters' prayers.
