Missouri basketball player shot

Columbia, MO (Sports Network) – University of Missouri junior forward
DeMarre Carroll was shot in the ankle early Thursday morning in downtown
Columbia.

Carroll was treated and released from a Columbia hospital shortly after the
incident.

“With this being an open investigation there is a lot of information that we
don’t know at this point in time and certainly can’t comment about,” Missouri
head coach Mike Anderson said. “Our main concern is for the safety of the
victims involved, including DeMarre, but it sounds like everyone is going to
be fine.

“This was a scary situation for DeMarre and one we will help him through. We
are just very grateful the injuries suffered by everyone involved don’t appear
to be life-threatening.”
