Former North Dakota Baseball Player Injured In Las Vegas Shooting

-

The shootings in Las Vegas constitute the worst mass shooting in modern American history. The count is up to 58 people dead, with over 500 having suffered injuries during the attack. The Grand Forks Herald is reporting that a former multi-sport athlete at Nebraska and the University of North Dakota was among them.

Andrew Gudmunson was shot and injured on Sunday night, requiring one immediate surgery and needing several more.

Gudmunson played both football and baseball, particularly excelling in the latter. A Minot high school legend, Gudmunson batted a gaudy .467 at the dish as a senior, and pitched to a 1.17 ERA on the mound.

His efforts helped lead his high school to a state title, and earned him a number of scholarships.

In college, he batted over .300 as both a sophomore and senior and affectionally held the nickname “Goody.” His coaches took to Twitter to express their concern and lend their support during this difficult time for him and his family.

The shooter responsible for the terror that unfolded at Mandalay Bay acted alone and is dead. When police searched his room, they found at least eight weapons, with some reports indicating he was in possession of even more.
