Brandon Roy Shot In Leg


Brandon Roy, head coach of Nathan Hale’s boys’ basketball team and former NBA all-star was shot in the leg at his grandmother’s house in Los Angeles over the weekend. According to Joseph Williams of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s office, Roy was attending a party in Compton with four other people and two men walked up and opened fire.

Roy ended up being shot in the leg, while the guys that he was with suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. The reason for the shooting is still unknown, and the investigation is still ongoing.

Just last night, the Portland Trail Blazers issued the following statement:

“Like many others, we’re just learning of the injury suffered by former Trail Blazers player Brandon Roy in a shooting over the weekend in California. According to those reports, Brandon was wounded as a bystander but is expected to recover. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brandon and his family during this time.”

In 2007, Roy won Rookie of the Year, and also made the all-rookie team as well. Roy was also a 3-time all-star who battled knee injuries throughout his career. He retired in June of 2013.
