University of Louisville football player Trent Guy wounded in shooting


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - University of Louisville football player Trent Guy was injured early Saturday morning in a shooting in downtown Louisville, according to a school football spokesman.

The shooting happened outside a parking garage near a club and was reported around 2:25 a.m., said Louisville police spokesman Phil Russell.

U of L football spokesman Rocco Gasparro said the 20-year-old junior wide receiver was taken to University Hospital, where he was in stable condition after surgery for a gunshot wound in the back.

"I was able to spend some time with Trent Guy this afternoon," Gasparro said Saturday. "He is in stable condition and are fortunate that his injuries aren't as severe as they could be."

Gasparro said an argument was sparked after a man touched Guy's fiance at a downtown club, whose personnel then asked them to leave.

On the way back to Guy's car, two men opened fire on the victim and his fiance, Gasparro said.

Police have not released the alleged perpetrators names and no arrests have been made.
