Community honors former high school football player with vigil and balloon launch

CLEVELAND -- Sunday afternoon a vigil was held honoring Michael Chapman, the former captain and quarterback of the John Hay High School football team.

Chapman was sitting in a park at East 93rd Street and Kenmore one year ago when someone shot bullets into the park. One of the bullets hit him in the spine and  he died from an infection from the wound two weeks after being shot.

Now, his mother, grandmother and other loved ones held a prayer vigil and balloon launch in his memory.
