Former Oregon State All American Dennis Weathersby is in critical condition after he was shot three times in the back by suspected gang members on Sunday, police said.
A potential first-round National Football League draft pick, this will obviously effect his future.
Weathersby was apparently getting into his car parked on Merridian Avenue at Citrus View Avenue when several alleged gang members in a white SUV drove up and its occupants opened fire, Williams said.
"There has been in that area particularly a lot of shootings over the past year or two that have been between rival gangs,' Williams said. "So, the potential is high that that is a factor.'
All-American and Pacific-10 selection, Weathersby was only the fourth player to ever be named to the All-Academic team four times. After a solid career at Oregon State Weathersby had improved his draft status after surprisingly turning in a pair of forties under the 4.4 barrier during February's combine.
