🏈 “Nelson was an integral member of the Georgetown football family," head coach Mike Hill said.

The Georgetown High School community mourns the death of the football team's assistant coach during an "incident" in Boston on Saturday.

Georgetown School Superintendent Margaret Ferrick said Nelson Curet died as a result of the incident, but did not disclose any details.

“The district is extremely saddened to hear of this tragic loss. We extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Coach Curet,” Ferrick said. “We ask that our community members keep Coach Curet’s loved ones in their thoughts during this time.”

Boston Police said Curet was killed in a double shooting on McGreevey Way in Boston's Mission Hill section early Saturday morning. Curet was pronounced dead at a hospital while the other victim's injuries were not considered life threatening.

The circumstances of the shooting were not disclosed by police. The department said it is "actively reviewing the facts and circumstances surrounding this incident."

Members of the football team and their families met with head coach Mike Hill, Georgetown High School Principal Jeff Carovillano, and Ferrick on Sunday. Adjustment Counselor Beth Daly will be made available as well as other resources to provide emotional support for students and employees.

“Nelson was an integral member of the Georgetown football family. The impact that he had on the students is immeasurable. His commitment to the support and development of the young men in the Georgetown community was bar none. We hold his family, children, the Mt. Ida community and all that knew him in our thoughts,” Hill said.

A GoFundMe page was created to help Nelson's family with funeral expenses.
