Auburn redshirt freshman Jakell Mitchell has been killed in an off-campus shooting.

Mitchell, who is a tight end, was rushed into hospital after being shot multiple times at an apartment complex in Auburn.

Mitchell was expected to compete for the H-Back spot in the oncoming season, although he had not seen any football action since his junior year in high school, when he tore his ACL. He committed to Auburn in May 2013 as a three-star recruit, Auburn247sports.com reported.

The news comes just after a big celebration on campus for Auburn Football after they confirmed that they had hired Will Muschamp as defensive co-ordinator.

None of that matters now. All that matters is prayers for Mitchell’s family and the prayers that this will never happen again.
