Former NBA Player Brandon Roy Shot, Wounded In California

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Authorities say former NBA player Brandon Roy was shot while attending a party in Southern California over the weekend.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Joseph Williams said Wednesday that Roy was one of four people shot in Compton on Saturday.

He said Roy and the three other victims were attending a party when two men walked up and opened fire without saying a word.

Williams said all four victims were shot in the upper body but suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting. No arrests have been made.

Roy was a shooting guard for the Portland Trail Blazers and won the NBA’s Rookie of The Year award in 2007.

He now coaches the men’s basketball team at a Seattle high school.
