LSU running back Leonard Fournette showed an outward sign of support for Alton Sterling on Thursday afternoon, tweeting out a photo of himself wearing a white t-shirt with a blown-up image of Sterling on the front.

Sterling, a black man, was fatally shot by a white police officer in a Baton Rouge convenience store parking lot Tuesday after officers reportedly responded to a disturbance call. His death has rocked the area, but it is eerily reminiscent of similar deadly shootings that have sparked activism and protests across the country.
