Lake Cormorant senior remembered at football game

LAKE CORMORANT, MS (WMC) - A DeSoto County student who passed away last weekend was remembered during Friday night's football game against West Point.

The 34-yard lines were marked on Gator Field at Lake Cormorant High School to honor Jaquarius Harper, who was number 34.

Harper, a senior, died in an accidental shooting Saturday morning.

Deputies say Harper and his friends were playing with a gun when it fired.

Students also held up a sign that paid tribute to Harper.
