Luzerne County Man Dies On Anniversary Of Shooting

June 8, 2018 GMT

DALLAS

A high school football star who was severely injured in a shooting years ago died this week.

Paul Brace Jr., 24, died Tuesday afternoon after being found in a bathtub at the family home, according to a Facebook post by his father.

Luzerne County Coroner Bill Lisman said an autopsy conducted Thursday was inconclusive and the cause and manner of Brace’s death won’t be known until toxicology testing is completed, a process that typically takes weeks. “There’s no suspicion of foul play,” he said.

Brace died Tuesday afternoon, exactly five years after he was shot during a home invasion in Harveys Lake on June 5, 2013.
