Herb Pope Shot

Word has trickled in that Aliquippa hoops star and New Mexico State recruit Herb Pope was shot last night and is in a Pittsburgh hospital. Privacy laws are preventing much information from being leaked in the incident. But Aliquippa Police Chief Ralph Pallante said Pope was "shot twice in the lower abdomen, once in the left lower arm and once in the thigh."
There are plenty of details not yet released, and plenty of questions awaiting to be answered. The P-G reports that detectives will speak with Pope on Sunday or Monday, after his surgery to possibly recover bullet fragments.
For a different perspective, check out the reaction on, NM State's Scout message board.

I was upset that the guy didn't go to Pitt, but I don't like seeing anybody from my hometown get shot (for those that don't know, I'm from near Aliquippa and there are parts of that place that are pretty dangerous these days).

It's just scary to see an area so close to where I grew up get that bad.
