An East Bay high school senior is being mourned today after he was killed in a shooting in San Francisco’s Bayview District on Saturday night. The teen, identified by the medical examiner’s office as 17-year-old Montreal Blakely, was shot in the first block of Osceola Lane at about 10 p.m. Saturday, police said. Blakely was taken by a friend to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The Concord High School student played on the football team as a starting defensive back, according to coaches. “He was a great kid, great teammate,” head coach Brian Hamilton said. “He was super friendly and conscientious … it’s a real tragedy.

” Many students at the school organized via social media to wear black today to mourn Blakely, and a vigil for him is planned at the football field at 7 p.m. Friday, Hamilton said. The team’s defensive coordinator, Randy Coddington, said Blakely was a team leader. “He was very hard-working, got really good grades. Everyone on the team liked him,” Coddington said. San Francisco police said today they had no information on possible suspects.
