Carter told Nashville police he was driving Thursday at about 1:30 p.m. when he reached a dead end, tried to turn around and was cut off by a driver in a black Nissan Altima. Carter says when he tried to drive around the Altima, both drivers rolled down their windows and the driver of the Altima produced a handgun.
Carter was reportedly shot in the left shoulder.
According to the Tennessean, Carter met with head coach Rod Reed after being released from the hospital this morning.
“The university is always concerned about the well being of students on and off campus,” TSU spokesperson Richard DelaHaya told the paper. “Cameron was doing what most students do when they leave campus. They go shopping and get something to eat. This incident is not an indictment on Nashville, but a cosmic reality of today’s society.”
