    A Leo High School football player who was injured in a barrage of gunfire last year will see his classmates Friday night for the first time since the shooting.

    Miles Turner is expected to the attend the prom with his mother and girlfriend.

    Last October, Turner tried to intervene when someone started shooting his cousin, Modell McCambry, in front of a house in the 6300 block of South Rhodes Avenue.

    Turner, 18, was shot five times and McCambry was killed in the shooting.

    At the time, police believed the shooting was gang-related, but didn't believe Turner had any gang affiliations.

    Turner was recently released from the Chicago Rehabilitation Institute. He's managed to stay on track for graduation with the help of a tutor.
