Hampton Forward Dead from Accidental Shooting

Theo Smalling a captain for the Hampton University basketball team has died from a reported accidental shooting outside a nightclub over the weekend. Smalling was a 22-year-old Tampa, Florida native who played forward for the Pirates and started 76 games over the last three years. Police have charged 21-year-old Dominique Devon Smith with reckless handling of a firearm because he mishandled his gun and shot Smalling in the parking lot early Saturday morning. This happens just a little over a week after Connecticut football cornerback Jasper Howard was stabbed to death at a school function. It’s such a shame to see these young men leave the world so early.
