Two FIU football players shot in drive-by attack

The Associated Press  has details of the incident, which took place in an area north of campus:

Opa-locka police chief James Dobson identified the players as running back Anthony Jones and offensive lineman Mershawn Miller. Jones was shot in the face and back, while Miller was shot in the arm. Both players were taken to Ryder Trauma Center, Jones getting airlifted there and Miller taken by ambulance.

Dobson said the condition of both players is stable, and that the injuries were not life-threatening. Police believe that Jones and Miller were visiting a friend in Opa-locka when someone in another car opened fire and sped away.

FIU did not release a further statement other than the tweet below but more information from head coach Butch Davis is expected in the coming days.
