Former Irish football fan favorite Louis Nix is thanking God right now that he is still alive after he was suddenly shot and robbed while simply putting air in his tires.
He announced the news on an Instagram live stream. He is asking for prayers. In the live stream, Nix states he does not want to die.
Thankfully Nix took to social media once again on Wednesday morning providing an update to his condition.
“I’m alive everyone. The bullet that hit my ricocheted off my sternum into my lung. Surgery is the next step so keep praying for me,” he said on Facebook.
He played at Notre Dame from 2011 to 2013 before being drafted by the Houston Texans in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
