Charleston Southern University is responding to the Charleston shooting. In a press release, the school says their family’s thoughts and prayers go out to all of the individuals affected by the shooting at Emanuel A.M.E. Church.

“We are especially mourning the loss of Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, the mother of rising sophomore Chris Singleton,” said President Jairy C. Hunter Jr. “Chris is a member of our baseball team. The CSU family is praying for Chris and his family during this painful time. CSU coaches and campus ministers are assisting the Singleton family as they deal with this tragedy.”

Head coach Stuart Lake said the players and coaches are hurting and are praying for Chris and his family. “Chris’s mother was just that parent that as a coach you are proud to have as part of your program. What she brought to our team is immeasurable,” said Lake.

Charleston Southern will hold a prayer vigil on Monday, June 22 at 11:30 A.M. in Lightsey Chapel on the Charleston Southern campus.
