    Miami safety Cooper shot, safety Meriweather returns fire

    SOUTH MIAMI, Fla. -- Miami Hurricanes reserve safety Willie Cooper was shot in the buttocks when confronted in his yard Friday morning by an unknown person who fled after another player returned gunfire.
    Police said Cooper was able to walk after being shot and the injury wasn't believed to be serious, but he was taken to a hospital for treatment.

    After Cooper was shot, teammate and roommate Brandon Meriweather pulled a pistol from his pants pocket and fired three times at the person, who jumped a fence and fled with another person in a car, police said. It was unclear if the assailant was hit.

    Police said Meriweather used his gun legally.
    Cooper and Meriweather told police they noticed a suspicious car parked outside their home near campus shortly after 6:30 a.m. When they went outside to investigate, a person crouched next to the house jumped up and shot Cooper.

    The Miami athletic department released a statement saying it was cooperating with the police investigation.

    "Until the investigation is complete, we will not have any additional comment," the statement said.

    Yes he did.

    However, the fact that he had a pistol in his pants pocket may be and more than likely is a sign that they were wrapped up in some shady things that may have caused the shooting to begin with.
