Police: Texas Tech player injured in shooting

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech's leading receiver, Jakeem Grant, was briefly hospitalized after suffering a laceration during an off-campus shooting over the weekend.

University spokesman Blayne Beal tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal (http://bit.ly/1qYcAuz ) that the junior was ''doing well'' after being hospitalized Sunday morning. Grant has 50 catches for 629 yards and five touchdowns. It wasn't clear where the injury will affect his role on the team.

Police Lt. Bryan Taylor says it's unclear what cut Grant. He says more than 20 rounds were fired from multiple weapons during a party at El Fronteriso. Taylor says a second person was injured but the wound wasn't life threatening.

No arrests or charges have been reported.
