Three Southern Miss players shot, critically wounded

Based on the sobering headline above, it goes without saying that Southern Miss’ upset win over No. 25 Central Florida is the very last thing on the Conference USA school’s mind.

While the details are very sketchy right now, a Mississippi State television station is reporting that three Golden Eagles were seriously wounded in a shooting early Sunday morning.  The players, whose names are not yet known, are all in critical condition, WDAM-TV is reporting.

The school has refused to comment on the report, but head coach Larry Fedora and several members of the football program have been seen at a local hospital throughout the morning.

According to the station, the incident that led to the shootings began inside Remington’s Hunt Club in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, at around 1:20 local time this morning.  The incident spilled outside, where the three football players were reportedly shot.

No arrests have been made in the shootings.

    Gee, they’re college students so they were probably at the club having a good time. Don’t try to use a tragedy to cast aspersions, moron.

    It’s a shame and I hope they all come out ok and while this seems like the wrong time to say it, I hope that someone on that team learns from this.

    @steelers6pack agreed. Doesn’t sound to me like they were having a good time. I guess my definition and slims definition are very far apart. My good times don’t get me shit. Go home and study and earn your scholarship.And how does his opinion make him a moron, moron?

    Wow, some of you are full of judgmental self-righteousness. And how do you know they don’t have money? An assumption on your part, isn’t it? By the way, just wondering if you consider yourself Christians, because you sure don’t sound like it. I’ll be praying for them and for the team, instead of being such jerks about it.

    Wow – who would have thought something like this would happen outside a place called Remington’s Hunt Club. Rule #1 – never start a fight in a place that is obviously stocked with guns and people who like to shoot and kill things!
