    Giants late round drafk pick shot hours after draft.

    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.

    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
