Incoming BYU freshman shot in arm during pickup basketball game

Tuesday July 7th, 2015

Incoming BYU freshman running back Charles West was shot in the arm while playing pickup basketball at a Dallas middle school on Sunday, according to the Dallas Morning News

D Magazine obtained video it says shows the shooting. 

West was transported to a local hospital and released, police said. 

West committed to play for the Cougars in January and was arrested for rape a week later. He is accused of raping woman while holding a knife to her neck. He was indicted on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in March. 

Because of the rape allegations, West's status with BYU is unclear. Head coach Bronco Mendenhall told reporters in June that there was “no word” on West.
