SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A memorial continued to grow outside Crenshaw High School as family and friends mourned a 16-year-old high school basketball player who was shot and killed in South Los Angeles.
Quincy Reese Jr. was an accomplished student who had big dreams. His family says he had a 3.4 GPA, was an honor roll student and planned on playing college basketball.
"Fifty-eight colleges wanted him, he was not regular. He was only in the 11th grade," said his father, Quincy Reese, Sr.
Quincy Jr.'s family says he'd gone to a party with his teammates on Saturday when a shooting broke out near 74th Street and West Avenue. The teenager was shot and died at the scene.
Police have not made any arrests, but his father says someone on social media is claiming they killed Quincy.
"There's been things on social media circling around... whoever did it posting his picture and all that - antagonizing the situation. As far as the police giving me information... nah, we find out stuff before the police do," said Quincy Sr.
Quincy's loved ones are pleading with the public to help them catch his killer.
His friends and family held a memorial for him over the weekend. They say he was known for his vision, passion, and drive, and that Quincy was always focused on his future.
"We're still going to keep God first. I'm going to execute his plan, or whatever plans that me and my son had. I'm going to do my best to execute it," the boy's father said.
Chris Halthon says Quincy was his best friend.
"He'll open up fast... just a fun person to be around," said Chris, who played basketball and ran cross country with Quincy.
The memorial outside the school on Monday was filled with candles, notes and images of Batman - Quincy's favorite superhero and a nickname he had.
One friend described him as the rock of his basketball team and a jokester who had dreams of playing in the NBA.
Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Alberto Carvalho issued a statement about Quincy's death on Monday morning, calling it a "terrible injustice."
Officials are urging anyone who has information about the fatal shooting to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
LAPD has not confirmed if the agency is looking into the reported social media posts.
There is no known motive for the shooting or a description of a suspect.
