Kevin Parrom Shot: Suspect Identified By Police, Parrom Recovering In Tucson

Since being shot near his leg around 1 a.m. on Saturday evening, Arizona forward Kevin Parrom is back in Tucson and is recovering from the incident. While the bullet did not lodge into the leg itself, it did do a considerable amount of damage as it grazed the skin.

Fortunately, Parrom should be able to make a full recovery within a few weeks and he will return to the basketball court in a month or so, according to head coach Sean Miller.

As for who committed the crime, New York City Police have identified Jason Gonzalez as the prime suspect in the shooting. Gonzalez, 19, reportedly fired the weapon in a scramble with Parrom and then fled the scene moments after the discharge.

Local police are asking for assistance in locating Gonzalez and the article has information on what to do if you have information on his whereabouts.

Arizona Wildcats Forward Kevin Parrom was shot in the leg in New York CIty early Saturday morning, but is reportedly recovering well. University of Arizona men's head basketball coach Sean Miller released a statement today with some more details:

"Kevin Parrom returned to Tucson last night. He will return to classes this week and also begin his rehabilitation process. We will know a lot more about his return to basketball activities in a month. At this time our focus is to provide him a comprehensive support system to allow him to progress to his full potential. Kevin, first and foremost, is fortunate to be alive."

Parrom (6-6, 205), is a key player for the Widcats, and averaged 7.6 points and 3.4 rebounds last season as his team won the Pac-10 title and reached the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. Arizona surely hopes he can get back to full strength and form in time to play this season, but as Miller said, they're just thankful he escaped with his life.
