Former Notre Dame defensive lineman Louis Nix III took to social media on Tuesday and revealed that he was simply putting air in his tires when he got shot and robbed.

Nix, who was a star at Notre Dame from 2010-2013 later selected in the third round of the NFL Draft by the Texans, recorded a video from inside an ambulance saying he was unable to contact anybody and wanted to send a message out in case “I don’t make it.”

Nix tweeted on Wednesday that he is alive. He updated folks saying the bullet hit his sternum and lung.

Nix spent time with four different teams but has been out of the league since 2016, as knee injuries derailed his career.

He had 122 total tackles, 14 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks in three seasons as a starter for the Irish.
