Tate Myre was an honors student who was "beloved by all" and had a "bright future," the Oxford football team said.

Myre, a junior, had been on the school's varsity football team since he was a freshman, the team said.

Myre died in a patrol car while deputies were taking him to a hospital, authorities said.

Justin Shilling, 17

Justin Shilling was the fourth victim to die. He died at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan, on Wednesday morning, sheriff's officials said.

The teen "was a grandson, a brother, a cousin, a classmate, and without hesitation, a friend," his family said in a statement. "The loss of Justin leaves such a gaping hole in our family that we cannot conceive of life without him."

"Justin was a scholar, part of Oxford School Districts Baccalaureate program and a university scholarship awardee. He was a tireless worker with three jobs that he juggled along wit his studies," the family said.

Shilling was also a golfer and co-captain of a bowling team, McDonald said.

"His potential was boundless in life and yet in death he continues to give of himself as an organ donor," his family said. "We feel the world can't have too much of Justin."
