Alabama DT Raekwon Davis reportedly shot in leg by stray bullet

Alabama defensive tackle Raekwon Davis was shot in the leg by a stray bullet while outside a Tuscaloosa bar early Sunday morning, according to a report from the Tuscaloosa News.

According to a report from the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit, Davis was standing outside Bar 17 -- where multiple shootings and a homicide have occurred in recent years -- when his leg was struck by a stray bullet. He was later treated at DCH Regional Medical Center, where investigators said he was uncooperative.

“The victim told investigators he was standing outside of Bar 17 when he heard several gunshots and realized he had been shot in the right leg,” Homicide Unit commander Capt. Gary Hood said, according to the paper. “The victim was uncooperative with investigators.”

Davis, a sophomore, is a projected starter at defensive end after collecting four tackles and one sack in seven appearances last season.
