    Tennessee teen killed shielding three girls from gunfire

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Police say a 15-year-old boy was killed Thursday when he threw himself on top of three girls to shield them from shooters, reports CBS affiliate WVLT.

    Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said the shooting was gang-related, but the targets were chosen at random, including Zaevion Dobson, who was killed. Police said the shooting was one of three related incidents involving gunfire in Knoxville Thursday night and Friday morning.

    One person has been arrested in connection with the shootings. Christopher Bassett, 20, is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. It is not clear if police have any suspects in Dobson's shooting.

    Fulton High School, where Dobson was a student and a member of the football team, offered grief counselors to students struggling with the news of Dobson's death.

    His brother, Zack Dobson, said Zaevion lived to play football.

    "That's what he did. He came home from school did his homework, watched film, watched documentaries of it, players. That's what he loved, football," said Zack Dobson.

    Fulton High School football coach Rob Black described Dobson as a natural born leader, who led others by example.

    "He's a sophomore only and already successful already leading a life that's contagious that people follow. So very liked by his peers and his teachers and his teammates. And that makes him successful," said Black.

    Kid's a hero. That sucks. I bet he would have gotten laid like a sailor if he'd lived through it.

    "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." There is a place in heaven for this wonderful young man. God always takes the great ones when they are so young.

    It's not all that unusual. Males are taught that they're disposable like garbage, and they have to protect females. You never hear of a woman taking a bullet for a man. During that shooting in Aurora, guys were meat shields in big numbers, 6, maybe 7 .

    A decent kid that would probably go on to have a good life killed by a 20 year old convicted felon. Sad story.

    Poor kids. Didn't do anything but be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Christopher Bassett, 20-years-old, is charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm and violation of probation. More charges are expected as the investigation continues.

    Bassett was taken into custody as he ran from a wrecked BMW early Friday morning.

    Three overnight shootings in the Knoxville area appear to be related according to police. Because the investigation is on-going, police could not release specific details about the case.

    Police believe the shootings were gang-related, but the victims were not. Knoxville Police Chief David Rausch said the victims were chosen at random.
