USF senior safety Hassan Childs has been arrested after being injured in a shooting Saturday night.
Police have charged Childs with three counts of aggravated assault and one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession.
Childs, 22, was shot three times by Jovanni Jiminez in an incident that began as road rage. Police responded to a call from Jiminez who said that Childs had pointed a gun at him, his wife and his child at the Eagles Point apartments on 46th street.
“We are deeply concerned that an incident occurred overnight in which one of our players, Hassan Childs, was injured in a shooting,” said coach Charlie Strong. “Thankfully, Hassan is in stable condition and being well cared for, and no one else was injured. There is an ongoing investigation of the incident and we are in the process of gathering further information. Out of respect for the integrity of the investigation, we cannot comment further at this time.”
Childs has been practicing with the Bulls as they go through their spring training.
