NFL Sensation Tank Dell Injured in Florida Shooting Scare!

1 Mins read

Houston Texans’ wide receiver Tank Dell was injured in a shooting on Saturday. The 24-year-old NFL star sustained a ‘minor wound’ in an incident that left nine other people injured in Sanford, Florida, on April 27, his team confirmed in a statement.

Incident Details and Arrest

Authorities reported the shooting occurred after midnight following a fight at a private event held at the Cabana Live events venue, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and witnesses, as reported by the Associated Press. The gunmen fired into the crowd with a 9mm handgun, as detailed in an arrest report obtained by the outlet. Prompt action by a security guard on duty, who tackled and disarmed the shooter quickly after the incident, along with another security guard who handcuffed him, helped prevent further harm until authorities arrived.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the shooting, according to the arrest report from AP. The suspect faces charges of attempted homicide, using a firearm during a felony, firing a weapon in a public place, and illegal possession of a firearm by a minor, and has been sent to a juvenile center.

Injuries and Recovery

Dell, who began his rookie season in 2023, received medical attention for his injuries and has since been released in good spirits. The other victims, who sustained non-life-threatening injuries below the waist, also received treatment in the hospital, according to AP reports.

Response and Investigation

“We are in contact with him and his family and will provide more updates when appropriate,” added the team in their statement. Cabana Live, in a Facebook post, stated, “We are cooperating with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and praying for everyone involved.” They also noted that they are still gathering information about the incident as investigations continue.

The shooting incident involving Houston Texans’ wide receiver Tank Dell underscores ongoing concerns about gun violence and safety, particularly at public events. As the legal process unfolds for the arrested suspect, Dell’s recovery and the well-being of all victims remain central concerns for the NFL community and local authorities alike. Ongoing cooperation with law enforcement and a focus on event safety measures will likely be areas of increased attention moving forward.
