Memorial event for Decatur victims set for Friday’s Rock Hill football game

Published 2:35 pm Friday, October 13, 2017

The Rock Hill High School Friday night football game is back on, following the arrest of a triple murder suspect earlier in the morning.

The game was originally canceled, due the ongoing manhunt for Aaron Lawson, who is suspected in the killings of four people in the Decatur area on Wednesday night.

Tonight’s game is set for 7 p.m. and organizers say a red and white balloon launch will take place in memory of the victims and invite the public to attend. More than 500 balloons will be handed out to the crowd.

The Rock Hill football moms will also set up a table at Friday night’s football game to take donations for funeral expenses for the family.
