Millington QB recovering after being shot

A Mid-South high school quarterback is recovering tonight with two bullets still in his body.

Randon Fryerson was shot twice after he and another man got into an argument at a park.

Randon Fryerson's smile stretches from Northaven to Millington.

"He's known as the quarterback," friend Amanda Lewis said.

He's the quarterback at Millington High School.

As a senior this year, Fryerson led the Trojans to a 13-1 record and the state semifinals.

But his playing days are in jeopardy.

Two shots hit Fryersonon at a Northaven playground Tuesday night.

Sheriff's investigators arrested another neighborhood man and charged Billy Biggs with attempted second degree murder.

Investigators said everyone was just hanging out at the park when all of a sudden Biggs and Fryerson got into an argument about a girl. They say Biggs pulled a gun. Fryerson took off running to try and get away, zigging and zagging. Eventually he got hit in the neck and the upper hip.

Fryerson is home recovering. His mother says the bullets are still lodged in his body. He cannot have any visitors for fear of staph infection.

His dream of a football career hangs in the balance, but his life does not.

"Very happy he's going to be okay. I can rest now," Lewis said.

And for that, friends can only smile. Just like Randon Fryerson.

Millington High School seniors will graduate Monday. Fryerson will get his diploma. His mom said he hopes to be there, but he probably will not walk across the stage.
