The Rams have released a statement moments ago declaring that Stedman Bailey has been shot while sitting inside of a vehicle on the outskirts of Miami, Florida.
“We have spoken with Stedman and he is in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more.”
Fox Sports 1 NFL Insider Mike Garafolo confirmed through a team source that Bailey has been shot twice in the head and extensive surgery will be required to repair the damage.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported that three of Bailey’s relatives, including two children, were in the vehicle during the shooting. The driver of the vehicle, who has been identified as Bailey’s cousin, has been shot multiple times while shielding the two children and his wounds are considered to be life-threatening.
Our prayers are with Stedman Bailey and his family following this tragic event.
