Jacquice Baylock, a sophomore WR on the Iowa Central Football team was killed in the incident.Any time we lose a student it is a sad occasion, but it is particularly difficult to lose a student through such a senseless act. Jacquice has been a great example and representative of our Triton Football program and Iowa Central Community College.Our hearts go out to his family and loved ones during this most difficult time. Please keep his family, friends and teammates in your thoughts and prayers.”
