An East Bay high school senior was mourned Monday after he was killed in a shooting in the Bayview district last weekend.

The teen, identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office as 17-year-old Montreal Blakely, was shot in the first block of Osceola Lane about 10 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Blakely was taken by a friend to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.

The Concord High School student played on the football team as a starting defensive back, according to coaches.

“He was a great kid, great teammate,” head coach Brian Hamilton said. “He was superfriendly and conscientious. … It’s a real tragedy.”

Many students at the school organized via social media and wore black Monday to mourn Blakely, and a vigil for him is planned at the football field at 7 p.m. Friday, Hamilton said.

The team’s defensive coordinator, Randy Coddington, said Blakely was a team leader.

“He was very hard-working, got really good grades. Everyone on the team liked him,” Coddington said.
San Francisco police said Monday they had no information on possible suspects.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s homicide detail at (415) 553-1145 or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or send a tip by text to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
