According to Robone’s father, the group dropped to the ground as the shooting broke out, but the coach was hit in the chest. His brother, Anthony, found him with blood coming from his mouth as the group dragged him to some police cars to stabilize him before emergency units reached the scene and transported him to the hospital.

Robone underwent surgery to remove a bullet from his chest, the team announced via Twitter. The bullet apparently missed his lung, although it was “bruised badly.”
