Sheffield said the family had chosen to “give the gift of life” and donate Harris’ organs.

Temple High School was placed on lockdown earlier this week following reports of a shooting on campus. According to police, Harris shot himself in the head at the school’s tennis courts. A gun was recovered on the scene.
