KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee defensive back Brandon Davis is recovering after being shot in the leg in an incident being investigated by Knoxville police.
An incident report says someone alerted a Knoxville police officer at 12:32 a.m. Saturday that Davis had been shot. The 20-year-old sophomore from New Orleans was being helped by several people and had an apparent gunshot wound in his left upper leg.
Davis told the officer he was inside the Uptown Bar & Grill when he heard a shot and felt pain in his leg. Davis, taken to the UT Medical Center for treatment, also said he didn't know who shot him or why. Trevon Flowers, also a Tennessee defensive back, told police he was inside the bar with Davis where the shooting took place.
