"I've got a little sister around that age, and it could have been one of my family members", he said.

Ja'Naiya's family confirmed the news at a vigil Wednesday.

Ja'Naiya Scott, 11, was shot inside her Anderson, S.C. home early Sunday morning after someone reportedly fired at the residence more than 35 times.

Upon a SC summer night, Ja'Naiya Scott sat on her family couch, joined by her older sister and cousin.

The tragedy, which occurred around 1:30 a.m. Sunday in the town of Anderson, hit home with Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson in more ways than one.

Woman arrested after allegedly trying to kidnap children at Atlanta airport
Dramatic footage shows the moment two parents fought off a woman who was trying to kidnap their child at an airport in Atlanta. She eventually calmed down enough to be taken to a hospital before being transported to the Clayton County Jail.

The 25-year-old former Clemson player revealed that upon hearing of the tragic death of Ja'Naiya Scott, he felt compelled to assist for her funeral.

"I was so speechless I couldn't saying anything", he told the outlet. I felt for her pain. "But I'm good to go now, all healthy, don't feel it and feel 100 percent".

This is not Lawson's first time lending a helping hand to a SC community, in 2017 he took a group of kids from Helping Hands of Clemson, a foster home and emergency shelter for children, shopping for Christmas. So far, no charges have been filed and no suspects have been named in the case. "It hit my heart".

"Whoever did this needs to come forward and tell the truth". "And whoever's hiding, it's wrong that you're hiding". It's just pointless killing people - killing an innocent child.

Though he's entering his fourth NFL season, Lawson has remained close to his roots: previous year, he covered the cost of a new scoreboard at Bolick Field, home of the Central Tigers youth football team.
