He was shot while at an outdoor gathering in the Los Angeles area. We were told, Roy was an innocent bystander in what may be a gang related shooting.
Roy was treated in southern California but has already returned to Washington while he recovers.
Roy entered the NBA after a decorated career at the University of Washington, and was the Rookie of the Year in 2006. He made three All-Star teams and appeared headed for greatness. But a degenerative knee condition forced him to retire early in 2011 at the age of 26. Roy briefly attempted a comeback in 2013, but only lasted five games in Minnesota.
Last year, Roy was the basketball coach at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, and the team, led by super-recruit Michael Porter, went undefeated.
