Officials with Caddo Parish Public Schools have announced the passing of 18-year-old athlete Domanique Jones. In a statement, the school says:

"it is with heavy hearts, Caddo Parish Public Schools must announce the passing of 18-year-old Domanique Jones. Jones, a senior at Green Oaks Performing Arts academy, passed away this afternoon after a brief hospitalization. He was known as a powerhouse on the basketball court and was a proud product of the Cooper Road where he spent the majority of his academic career. A two-time district MVP, Domanique had a following for his athletic abilities but was equally known for his measured, quiet manners walking the halls of green oaks. The loss of Domanique is painful for our Caddo family and we mourn along with our Green Oaks teachers, administrators and students. ."

The Green Oaks Boys Basketball team was preparing for a playoff game when Jones practiced with the team Sunday. But he had to leave school on Monday with chest pains.

Green Oaks' basketball team lost last night to Abbeville, and was knocked out of the LHSAA playoffs.

Caddo Schools have placed additional grief counselors on the campus, who will be there as long as needed
