Towson F John Davis Injured In Drive-By Shooting

A member of the Towson basketball team was injured in a drive-by shooting while visiting home over the weekend.

According to the university, Tigers standout John Davis was injured in an “apparent drive-by shooting” in Philadelphia while he stayed in his hometown to celebrate the birth of his son.

The good news is that the injury does not appear to be serious, with Davis being released from the hospital later in the night.

Townson issued a statement on the incident.

“John stayed back in Philadelphia Saturday night for the dedication of the birth of his son, Bryson Hunter Davis Harris,” head coach Pat Skerry said. “He was outside of his family home when a car drove by and opened fire. We are extremely thankful that John, and everybody else involved, was not seriously harmed. Our main focus is the health of John Davis.”

Davis, the team’s third-leading scorer and leading rebounder, is averaging 11.8 points and 7.6 boards this season.

The senior forward recorded 14 points and 10 rebounds in Towson’s win over Drexel on Saturday before the drive-by occurred.
