SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A former local high school football star died Monday after being shot in San Francisco’s Bayview District last month.

David Henderson, 21, of San Francisco, died at San Francisco General Hospital, according to the medical examiner’s office.

Henderson, a San Francisco resident who attended Abraham Lincoln High School and was playing on the semi-professional Pacifica Islanders football team, was injured in a shooting reported at 12:05 p.m. on May 26 in the 1400 block of Kirkwood Avenue.

Emergency responders took him to San Francisco General Hospital, police said.

According to a fundraising page supporting Henderson’s recovery that was set up by the Pacifica Islanders, he was shot three times, and one of the bullets severed his spinal cord.

Henderson played running back and defensive back for the team, according to its website.

Police have not announced any arrests in the shooting.
