DALLAS Dallas police said 15-year-old Christopher Gordon was standing with a group of friends in the 3700 block of Forest Lane Monday night when someone fired into the group.

Christopher was shot in the head and killed.

Investigators are trying to figure out if he was in the wrong place at the wrong time or if he was an intended target.

Christopher was a junior varsity football player at Berkner High School in Richardson. 'He was just standing there when his friend says someone drove by and shot at them,' said head coach Jim Ledford. 'He was a good kid... never had to discipline him for anything.'

Ledford said he was on the phone all day with Gordon's teammates who can't believe this happened.

'Everyone though highly of him,' the coach said. 'We are all devastated by this.'

Ledord said Gordon was a talented ballplayer with a bright future.

Dallas police are now searching for his killer and hope someone comes forward with information.
