Over the weekend, Ole Miss clinched its first-ever baseball national championship as they took down Oklahoma to complete a 2-game title series sweep.
Things seem to be going great with the celebration until gunshots rang out. An Ole Miss football player in Omaha to watch the baseball squad was shot after celebrating the victory.
Per the Omaha police scanner, Andrew Burnett, a freshman wide receiver, was shot from a pickup truck:
A news release said witnesses reported the shot came from a dark-colored, extended-cab pickup truck.
Per HottyToddy.com, Burnett was shot in the leg. Burnett’s sister-in-law, Cassidy Burnett, said it didn’t appear to be a targeted attack:
“He was there with his brother, Scott, who is a senior at Ole Miss,” Cassidy said. “He was shot while they were walking back to the hotel. We don’t think he was targeted, necessarily. To our knowledge, no one else in the area was shot. So it really seems to be just a random drive-by shooting.”
Drew Burnett is a walk-on freshman.
