Shot in leg according to what i saw. Upper leg can be lethal. Lower leg, not so much.

Hope he is OK! The last thing we need is another player dying in the Dominican Republic.

I wonder how rare B-positive blood is. I ask because I'm B-positive, but sadly, nowhere close to be able to help.

B Pos is uncommon but those patients can also take O Pos blood (most common type) too. I work at a trauma center transfusion service and we keep O units in reserve for emergencies since the patient could need blood before we're able to confirm the blood type.

Don't know how the blood supplies are in the Dominican but if they are really asking for donations, it doesn't sound like they have adequate supplies on hand. Not sure how informed or misinformed that tweeter is about the situation.

Update is now Attempted Murder will be the charge. Not that it makes it any more serious than a burglary attempt, but wonder the motive. Just awful
