CORUNNA - A soldier, who is a recent graduate of Corunna High School in Shiawassee County, has been killed in Afghanistan. Shane Cantu graduated from Corunna High School in 2010. The school's principal says he was notified that Cantu was killed earlier this week in an explosion while serving in the Army in Afghanistan. The principal says Cantu lived in Corunna all his life and went through the Corunna School system. He played football in high school.

News 10 went to Corunna High School today to speak with the principal, a coach who knew Shane well, and students who knew him. Watch tonight at 6pm for that report.

    My heart hurts learning this news. My sisters Fiance, who was Shane's buddy, was killed 2 weeks ago in Afghanistan. Both are Heros and will never be forggoten. My deepest, deepest condolences to Shanes Family and Friends. I know what they are going through. Please know there is love and support from Portland, Oregon and we're praying for you guys.
