At least one NFL player was affected by the recent shooting that took place in Arkansas at a night club.

Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden confirmed that at least three members of his family were in attendance that night and wounded, including his nephew that was shot, in the mass shooting at Power Ultra Night Club.

McFadden released a statement after the video became public.

“The other night, while at home, I received a call from my nephew that there was a shooting at the club where he and some of my relatives were.  He told me that he got shot, many other people were shot, and that some of my relatives were among those shot.  Out of concern for all the people affected by this horrible tragedy, I went down to the scene to check on my relatives and to offer any help I could.

I appreciate all of the people who have reached out to check in on my family.  We all appreciate your kind words and prayers.  At this time, I am asking people to respect the privacy of family and their medical status.

Finally, I want to again send my thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the shooting.”

The shooting left 25 people wounded and 3 people injured attempting to escape.
