SACRAMENTO -- It's been nearly one year since Grant Union High School football player JJ Clavo was gunned down. The 17-year-old's death garnered a lot of attention from the community, the mayor, even the Sacramento Kings.
One year later, JJ's mother Nicole still calls her son's death "unreal".
It was a Friday night and the Grant Union High School football team was in the playoffs. The athlete was shot and killed just before the game on Nov. 13, 2015.
"I don't think there's a day that I haven't spoken my son's name in 363 days," said his mother, Nicole Clavo.
An arrest in the homicide came in February. Keymontae Lindsey was charged with killing the star football player. The Sacramento Police Department said there are no other outstanding suspects.
A preliminary hearing continued from October to December is the next thing Clavo said she has to prepare herself for.
"I believe there's going to be information that's going to probably devastate me," she said.
The last 12 months have had their ups and downs for Clavo, but she said Sunday's anniversary marks a milestone and celebrates her journey this last year.
