Western Kentucky defensive lineman Trae Jones was shot early Friday morning outside of a Bowling Green area nightclub following the Hilltoppers 46-14 win over Rice.
Jones was hit by a stray bullet around 2 a.m. outside Chocolate City nightclub, according to WBKO News. Western Kentucky released a statement on Friday, stating that Jones was not injured severely and has not had any charges brought against him.
“Junior defensive lineman Trae Jones was wounded in his left shoulder by a stray bullet earlier this morning at an off-campus location,” read the statement. “The injury is non-life threatening, he received no large structural damage, and is under physician care. Bowling Green Police have not levied any charges against Jones. All other police matters should be directed to the Bowling Green Police Department.”
The redshirt junior appeared in five games in 2014, recording three tackles, and did not play in 2015. He did not record a tackle in the Hilltoppers’ win on Thursday.
