Funeral plans set for slain high school football player

Funeral services are set for a Mays High School sophomore football player who was shot inside his home Monday.

Services for Marquez Montgomery will be held at noon Monday at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church on Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta. The viewing will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at Murray Brothers Funeral Home on Utoy Springs Road in Atlanta.

Montgomery was allegedly shot in the head by his cousin Dontavious Montgomery as he was FaceTiming with his girlfriend. Police say Marquez Montgomery was shot without provocation.

Dontavious Montgomery, who faces murder charges, was out on a $100,000 bond in connection with a separate murder in January 2015.

He remains in the Fulton County jail.

A GoFundMe page set up to raise funds for funeral costs reached more than $9,700 of its $10,000 goal by 5 p.m. Friday.
