Arizona swingman Parrom shot in NY, school saysPosted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -- The University of Arizona says basketball player Kevin Parrom was shot this weekend while visiting family in New York City.
The New York Police Department says the shooting occurred early Saturday at a residence in the Bronx. Officer Chris Pisano says the victim suffered gunshot wounds to his left hand and right knee and was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
Pisano says a dispute occurred before the shooting, but he had no details.
Wildcats coach Sean Miller says he has been in contact with Parrom and looks "forward to his return to Tucson and being back in class this week." Miller added: "Once we have more information, we'll be able to address his potential return to team activities."
One of Parrom's former coaches says the junior swingman is doing OK. Gary Charles tells The Arizona Daily Star that Parrom told him he could walk.
No arrests have been made in the shooting.
