University of Illinois senior football student-athlete Trulon Henry was injured in an off-campus shooting early Sunday morning (Nov. 13) in Urbana. Henry, a two-year starter for the Fighting Illini, was shot in the hand and underwent surgery. He will miss the remainder of the regular season, and his status for a possible bowl appearance is unknown.
Henry, who was not originally at the party, was called by a teammate to help encourage players at the party to leave. Henry was one of three people shot.
Henry, a native of Washington D.C., was a starting outside linebacker this season after starting all 13 games as a safety in 2010. He is ninth on the team with 39 tackles and is tied for the team lead with two interceptions.
Details on the incident should be obtained from the Urbana Police Department.
