Brandon Roy shot in his leg outside his grandmother’s house near LA
A really special up and comer plagued by injuries and forced to retire, Brandon Roy shot in the leg while visiting his grandmother outside of LA
Former NBA All-Star Brandon Roy was shot in the leg outside his grandmother’s house near Los Angeles, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports’ Sam Amick.
The person requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
Someone opened fire randomly outside his grandmother’s house, and he was shielding some of the kids who were there, the person said.
Roy was treated in Southern California, but has already returned to Washington state while he recovers, according to King5 TV in Seattle. The incident happened over the weekend according to the outlet.
Brandon Roy was a three-time All-Star and the Rookie of the Year. His legs were made of glass and made him retire super early. I loved watching this guy play. Brandon Roy was a superstar in this league at one point and damn I wish he was still in the mix. Currently, he is the head coach at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle.
How bad does it suck to be shot in your leg right outside your grandma’s house? He was most likely minding his own business hanging out and bam! Might really not known what even happened. I hope this guy makes it back to the NBA in some capacity.
