Two Western Kentucky Football Players Shot Outside Bar
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Two Western Kentucky football players are recovering after being wounded by gunshots outside a bar.
A statement from the school's athletic department said defensive lineman Tevin Holliman and defensive back Ricardo Singh were each hit once, and their wounds weren't life-threatening.
The shooting early Sunday outside the Lava Lounge in Bowling Green happened hours after the team played its annual spring game.
Bowling Green Police spokesman Ronnie Ward said it appears someone shot into a crowd outside the bar and struck the players. He said an officer driving by the scene heard gunshots and called for backup at 12:39 a.m.
Holliman is a sophomore from Tucker, Georgia, and Singh is a freshman from Auburndale, Florida.
The school's statement said coach Willie Taggart has spoken to the parents of both players.
