Shooting Victim, Talented Baseball Player

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._He was a talented baseball player who loved the sport. That's how 22 year old Australian native Christopher Lane is being remembered nearly ten thousand miles away in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia.

Sunday, dozens of Australian media outlets shared who Lane was after he was shot and killed Friday in Duncan, in what police are calling a senseless act of violence. Recognized as a talented baseball player in Australia, it was a baseball scholarship in Oklahoma that brought lane to the U.S.

In a press conference Sunday, Lane's father said his son loved to play baseball and that upon obtaining his diploma he planned to pursue a career in real estate in his home of Australia.
