BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Denham Springs High School announced Sunday evening they will be holding two events to help a grieving family pay for funeral costs after a shooting spree killed a father, and his two children.

On Monday, students who attend DSHS are allowed to wear red in honor of Tanner Ernest, a 17-year-old who attended the school, who was shot and killed Saturday in his home along with his sister, Summer, and father, Billy.

In an announcement made on Facebook, the school said they’ll also be holding a free dress day on Tuesday, where students can pay to dress out of uniform, and those proceeds will be donated to the Ernest family.
