Panthers Send Care Package To Young Fan Whose Father Was Murdered (Video)

by

Malik Douglas was supposed to go to his first Carolina Panthers game with his father, Michael Douglas, and his twin brother Mikehi, but tragedy derailed their plans for some father-son bonding.

Michael Douglas was fatally shot in the back five days before Monday’s Week 8 game against the Indianapolis Colts, and 16-year-old Malik talked about his story with Terri Sims, a social worker at his high school in Greensboro, N.C. Sims then reached out to the Panthers, who responded with a care package for Malik that included personal notes from coach Ron Rivera and quarterback Cam Newton.

CBS affiliate WFNY aired footage that Sims captured of the special moment.

Definitely a very classy gesture from the Panthers.
