College Football Player Shot After Pointing Gun at Couple, Police Say


Police in Tampa, Florida claim a local college football player was shot in an alleged road rage incident on Saturday. Hassan Childs, a defensive back for the University of South Florida, survived, but he’s been accused of starting the whole thing.

Coach Charlie Strong of the University of South Florida football team issued a statement, largely declining to comment.

We reached out to a USF spokesperson for more information. Childs, a senior, has played for the bulls since 2013.
