Geno Hall, a former high school football star, was shot at a Halloween party at USC this week. He is in critical but stable condition after sustaining seven bullet wounds.
He was apparently the target of the shooting; the motivation is unclear.
Hall is recovering in the intensive care unit at California Hospital after sustaining bullet wounds in the left thigh, back of leg, buttocks and arm, said his father, Eugene Hall.
He said his son had attended the party Wednesday night on the USC campus with several of his former football teammates when he and three others were shot.
Hall identified another victim as Davonte Smith, one of his son's Crenshaw High School football teammates. Smith was also being treated after being shot in the foot, he said.
Hall did not know why his son was shot or who the suspects were.
