Bucs rookie okay after being shot
Bucs offensive lineman Dominique Robertson, an undrafted rookie competing to make the team as a backup, was okay after being shot in Loma Linda, Calif., early Thursday, his lawyer said Saturday.
Robertson, 21, was shot twice in a leg and was released from the hospital Friday night, lawyer Zulu Ali said. A San Bernardino County Sheriff's spokeswoman, citing a detective, said Robertson's injuries were to his "back, buttocks and leg."
Robertson, who was questioned by police, was a bystander in the shooting, Ali said.
Robertson told police he was shot outside an apartment complex. San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies "were unable to locate evidence (of) a crime scene," a department release said. His mother told the Riverside Press-Enterprise that her son, the nephew of Bucs offensive line coach George Warhop, was staying with friends.
The Bucs said in a statement they were gathering more information about what happened. "(The) primary concern is for Dominique's health and well-being," they said.
The Bucs open training camp July 28.
