In the wake of the shooting death of Christopher Lane, a Twitter hashtag has been started to pay tribute to and remember the East Central University baseball player from Australia.

The tag #BaseballCapForChrisLane sprouted up Wednesday and encourages people to wear a baseball cap for the late athlete.







Police have arrested James Francis Edwards Jr. 15, Chancey Allen Luna, 16, and Michael Dewayne Jones, 17, in connection with the shooting.

Based on interviews with the teenagers, police said the shooting was a “thrill killing” because the boys said they were “bored.”

Lane was shot at random as he was jogging in Duncan last Friday, authorities said.
