|Parker Morris, age 17|
From the article:
A 17-year-old Calera High School student died following a shooting in Chilton County on Jan. 21.
Parker Morris was pronounced dead at 10:40 a.m. Sunday, her mother, Elaine Walton, told the Shelby County Reporter.
Walton called a shooting incident at a residence just outside of Thorsby, near the intersection of County Road 50 and Highway 191, an “accident.”Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis would only say the case is being treated as a “death investigation.”
From another article:
“When the accident occurred (in Thorsby), there was no cell phone service or a landline,” Walton said. ”They had to put her in the car to get service or flag someone down. They flagged down a vehicle that turned out to be a firefighter. That’s when they called the paramedics, and she was transported to Shelby (Medical Center).”
From a third article: She was an organ donor.
Walton said Morris was accepted recently into the honors program at the University of Montevallo.
“She had such a broad range of friends. She never met a stranger,” Walton said. “Through this whole experience, I have met so many people that have said how they’ve been affected by Parker and how she’s affected their lives in ways they’ll always be thankful for.”
