Funeral plans are set for a Minneapolis high school football player who drowned last week.

Fifteen-year-old Sha-Kym Adams was swimming at Lake Nokomis on Wednesday with some teammates when he went under the water.

The medical examiner concluded his death was an accidental drowning.

On Friday, there will be a visitation for Adams at New Salem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, which is from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

His funeral is set for the next morning at 10:30 at the same church.
