    “I heard about eight or 9 shots. I was laying down,” said neighbor Tarina Fikes.

    Hours later, an entire community would learn that Knott, a longtime Cody High School girls basketball coach, was gone.

    “I don’t understand. I’m speechless. I don’t know who would do that,” said Fikes.
    And why? For 20 years Knott dedicated his time to teaching students how to hoop. Feelings of shock and sadness filled the halls of Cody High on Wednesday.

    “I just can’t believe this would happen to him,” said Kimberly Deloch, a parent at the high school. “He has so much inspiration for the kids and everything, it’s sad. It’s a sad day today.”

    Knott was a mentor. He was a man who made a difference. He touched so many lives and his was taken away.

    “He was fun to hang around. He was really kind, everyone loved him,” said student Asia Alvin.

    A candlelight vigil will be held for Coach Knott in the coming days.
