Sadly, real life has found a way to impact one of the top returning wide receivers in the SEC.

According to WJTV, Tyriunce Lewis, the brother of Mississippi State Bulldog Jameon Lewis, was shot and killed late Sunday morning at an apartment complex in Tylertown, Miss. The website wrote that “a disagreement between Tyriunce Lewis and Kendall Magee escalated into gunfire.”

Lewis was shot once in the head with a handgun, the sheriff told the television station.

Tyriunce Lewis was in attendance at the Bulldogs 49-0 season-opening win over Southern Miss Saturday, a fact the receiver relayed in an Instagram post Monday.

It’s crazy how life works at time… Just saw my lil brother last night, he came to my game to support me!!! Who knew that was gonna be my last time seeing my blood brother!!! Life is unpredictable #RipToot I love ya lil bra!!! I promise ya, your lil ones would be in good hands & have a bright future!!! #FlyHighBra #MuchLoveTubby

Jameon Lewis is the leading returning receiver in the SEC. He had three catches for 25 yards in the opener.

    Good thing he wasn’t shot by a white guy, otherwise people might really be upset.

    A terrible tragedy. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

    Stupidity. Settling an argument with a killing.
    Mucho guy with the gun. I hope that he gets the death penalty, and a serious lesson is learned by the punks who have to carry guns……how mucho will you be when strapped down, waiting for the injection. NO prayers for you.

    What does prayer have to do with it?

    I’m going to assume since you ask this you have no religious affiliation and therefore don’t understand why those of faith would offer “prayer” and condolances to the family of someone that they’re bereaving.

    Those of religious faith believe that it is customary to pray for the family during their time of loss. But again if you lack faith you wouldn’t understand the importance of prayer.

    God Bless You….

    Point taken, but why didn’t prayer or whatever counts as prayer upfront, spare this person from premature death? Prayer is a bandaid covering a wound. Take the energy that fuels prayer and bring it to the real world to work to curb the violence. If prayer makes you feel like you’ve done your part, then good for you.

    If you don’t already know that people of faith do a lot of work to curb violence, then you are being stupid. You are talking about something you haven’t even bothered to check.

    If you do know that, then you are being dishonest to suggest that “prayer makes people feel like they’ve done their part.”

    So which are you, stupid or dishonest? I’m guessing dishonest, since you obviously just have an agenda. You choose a story on a horrible tragedy to bash people of faith. Quite the sympathetic person yourself, aren’t you? About as bad as the idiot above making a racial point about it.

    A young man is dead, but people still want to push their agenda.

    Touched a nerve there, didn’t ? I won’t lower myself to your level to hurl insults, other than to say that you may not be capable of sustaining a rational or intelligent dialogue. But I will say this. Many have observed, more conflict and damage to humanity has been committed in the name of religion than any other variable. Faith is belief without fact. What is prayer? Why did he die? Why do good people, children die before their time.

    Most people of faith do pray daily for the human race as a whole and all the problems that plague our society, from hunger, war, atrocities, and many many other issues that affect every living breathing thing on this planet.

    Terrible things happen that we can’t understand because of the affect it has on our lives and as a member of the Christian faith the offer of prayer to comfort a family’s pain is all that we can do, but it is important because it is an offer of support for those hurting and trying to reason with their loss.

    Not going to accuse you of having an agenda, BUT if that is your course of action you are taking then I’ll go ahead and pray for you now before you experience something horrible and unexpected in your life…

    Again.. God Bless you and keep you bound in his loving grace and mercy…

    My lengthier response apparently wasn’t posted. But, citing religion and reason within the same message deserves a lol.

    An oft told lie is that religious people are unintelligent or lack reason.

    This is simply not true. I am a Christian. I also happen to hold a PhD in a scientific field. Many of my colleagues do as well. I would say 9 out of the 10 most successful scientists I know are religious. They are numerous example of eminent scientists with religious beliefs through history as well as today. The same is true of the legal field, the business field, et al.

    Granted, there are ignorant and illogical religious people. There are also ignorant and illogical secular or irreligious people.

    This is not the time or the place for the debate you are pushing.

    Clearly you are passionate about your beliefs, yet your comments betray that to some degree those beliefs are misinformed and seem to be pointed at a straw man.

    I encourage you to recognize that it is possible to identify with and respect people from all walks of life.

    I truly wish you the best.

    Ironic to say “touched a nerve” and follow it up with “won’t hurl insults.” A logical person would see the inconsistency of putting those two statements together.

    Nevertheless, the fact remains, a young man is dead, and people find that report a good place to push their agenda. Which is sad.

  13. fansrus says: Sep 3, 2014 3:38 PM

    Not pushing an agenda or disrespecting anyone’s truly held beliefs. I am questioning those who invoke prayer as a response to an unspeakable tragedy as if somehow, in reality, this serves to ease pain and suffering. The 9 year old who accidentally shot and killed her instructor, the two journalists beheaded in the Middle East, tsunami victims, high school kids murdered by their classmates, only getting started here. When praying, are you addressing the “entity” who permitted these acts to occur in the first place? Prayer and condolences are best conducted privately.

    P.S. Ebola? Please explain.

    @ fansrus

    You are pointing to the problem of evil or suffering as the basis for your objections.

    This is a very common topic. Interestingly, it has contributed (among other factors) to some Christians becoming atheists (Bart Ehrman et al) and has been considered and rejected by some former atheists who became Christians (CS Lewis et al).

    There have been very good debates on that topic. A good balanced one was Hitchens vs. Wilson –

    I hope the fact that great thinkers have landed on both sides of this debate helps you see there is a flip side of the coin to the honest questions you have raised.

    Dear Lord be with the Lewis family to get them through this difficult time & give the needed people more common sense!Guns are made for putting food on the table not for pointing at another human being! Some just don’t get this or don’t respect others!
