CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Family members say the man shot and killed by a Cincinnati Police officer was a good kid and gifted athlete at Withrow High School.

Since 2013, Terry Frost started “hanging around the wrong crowds,’” friend Brandon Kenney described.

Police said the 20-year-old entered Fifth Third bank with a gun and jumped over the teller counter Wednesday. He was then shot and fatally injured by an off-duty Cincinnati Police officer.

Kenney described Frost as a good kid who was focused on football.

Frost, a cornerback for Withrow High School, received two college football scholarship offers and was mentioned on ESPN.com’s recruiting page.

“I never thought I'd be going to my grandson's funeral for robbing a damn bank.  It hurts,” said Terry Frost, Sr.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley said Frost has no “significant” criminal record.

He attempted to rob Madison Road bank wearing a mask and hood with a plastic bag wrapped around his hand, “indicating he was armed with a weapon,” according to Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac.

Officer Kevin Hankerson fired two shots at Frost as he fled the bank. His body was located about one block away.

Police are expected to release surveillance video of the incident on Friday.
