A former NBA All-Star and current high-school basketball coach of the year was shot Saturday near Los Angeles while shielding a number of children from gunfire, USA Today reports. According to KING 5, Brandon Roy was attending a party at his grandmother's house in Compton when two men walked up. A source tells USA Today the men "opened fire randomly," and four people were hit. All four victims—including Roy, who was shot in the leg—had non-life-threatening injuries. Roy was treated in California before flying home to Seattle to recover. Police have not made any arrests in the shooting nor identified a motive, though a source tells KING the shooting might be gang-related.
Roy was the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2007 while playing for the Portland Trail Blazers. He would go on to become a three-time All-Star in his six seasons in the NBA before being forced to retire due to knee injuries. The 32-year-old was undefeated this year during his first season coaching basketball at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, Yahoo Sports reports. Nathan Hale was the country's top-ranked team, and Roy won the Naismith High School Coach of the Year award. (Read more Brandon Roy stories.)
