UHS Senior Fatally Shot by Brother Playing with Gun

UHS Senior Fatally Shot by Brother Playing with Gunf115adFUNDING

(C. Proxmire, Feb. 26, 2013)

Grief counselors were available at University High School on Friday and Monday for students who learned of the death of 17 year old Sammuel Lee, a senior at the school.

According to The Detroit News, Lee was in his Highland Park home when his older brother (who is either 23 or 34) was “playing around” with a handgun on Tuesday and it discharged accidentally.  Lee died from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

As of Friday no charges have been brought, the report states.

University High School students were on Winter Break last week, but teachers and counselors from Common Ground Sanctuary were on hand Friday in case students or staff wanted to stop in and talk.  School resumed Monday and support was there then as well.

Ferndale Schools has set up a place online where people can contribute to funeral expenses to help the family.  Donate online at

Ferndale Police offer gun locks free of charge.  To read more about this program and other gun safety tips, view our previous article
