The talk of this weekend was supposed to be the NFL draft but unfortunately, it has changed as a Giants draft pick was shot. 6th round pick for the New York Giants cornerback Corey Ballentine was shot and has non-life-threatening injuries while Dwane Simmons succumbed to his injuries. The Giants have released a statement on the incident:
Statement from the #NYGiants: We are aware of the tragic situation and continue to gather information. We have spoken to Corey, and he is recovering in the hospital. Our thoughts are with Dwane Simmons’ family, friends and teammates and the rest of the Washburn community.
