#RIPChrisMass: A tweet may have led to death of Chapel Hill, Texas athlete


Police are saying a tweet might have prompted the fatal shooting of a former Chapel Hill, Texas standout.

Saddened by horrific news former Chapel Hill multi-sport star Chris Mass was shot & killed today, he had a smile that would light up a room.

Mass helped Chapel Hill reach the state basketball tournament for the first time. He was also an all-district quarterback for the football team.

Chapel Hill basketball begins playoffs in a week. I’m guessing they’ll be playing for more than just themselves. #RIPChrisMass
