Posted

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A University of Toledo football player was shot and killed following a fight at a city pizza restaurant, authorities said.

Jahneil Douglas, 22, was shot around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Authorities said the fight involved two men, and it wasn't immediately clear if Douglas was involved or what caused the brawl.

No other injuries were reported in the altercation, and no arrests have been made.

Douglas was preparing for his junior season with the Rockets. He was a defensive lineman who had played in 12 games over two seasons, totaling two tackles.

In a statement posted Wednesday morning on Twitter, school athletic director Mike O'Brien said Douglas' death was “a devastating loss for our football team and our University, and a very sad day for all of us in Rocket Nation.”
