Instead of celebrating his team’s 49-0 win over Southern Miss, one Mississippi State player is in mourning.

According to WJTV in Jackson, Tyriunce Lewis, the brother of Bulldogs senior wide receiver Jameon Lewis, was shot and killed in Tylertown on Sunday morning.

Walthall County Sherriff Duane Dillon told WJTV that Tyriunce Lewis and Kendall Magee got into a disagreement and that Magee shot Lewis once in the head at Oakhurt Apartments.

Lewis was airlifted to Forrest General Hospital and pronounced dead later Sunday afternoon.

Magee is in custody pending his initial court date.

Jameon Lewis is the leading returning wide receiver in the Southeastern Conference. In the opener, he had three catches for 25 yards and returned a pair of punts for five yards.
