    Giants late round drafk pick shot hours after draft.

    https://www.wibw.com/content/news/On...509179821.html

    A Washburn football player was killed in an overnight shooting in central Topeka that also wounded a former player, according to Washburn University.

    Washburn confirmed junior Dwane Simmons, 23, was killed in the shooting, while former player Corey Ballentine was injured.

    Ballentine, 23, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Topeka Police said. The former Ichabod, who had been drafted by the New York Giants just hours earlier, is expected to make a full recovery, the University added.

    Investigators say officers responded around 12:45 a.m. to the 1400 block of 13th Street on reports of gunfire. An officer on the scene told 13 NEWS’ Grant Stephens that Simmons died in the street from a gunshot wound.

    Later Sunday morning, they confirmed there was a second shooting victim, Ballentine.

    The investigation into the shooting remains ongoing. Investigators are asking anyone with information to call the Topeka Police Criminal Investigation Bureau at 785-368-9400 or Shawnee Co. Crime Stoppers at 785-234-0007. Anonymous tips can be made online as well at www.p3tips.com/128.

    Btw, they finally have a suspect charged with the murder. They've actually had the guy in custody on other charges for a while.

    My oldest knew some of the guys who were at the party. According to his friends, there were a ton of people there, a few came in who no one knew and started trouble. They were removed, came back a little later and well...

    How true that is, idk. The guy they charged has a bunch of burglary charges against him.

    Just saw this thread still sitting here on top. It is worth adding that Ballentine has recovered and by several reports shined in his opening pre-season game vs the Jets:
