Nellum Shot

USC sprinter Bryshon Nellum, the 2007 Gatorade national boys’ track and field athlete of the year, was shot in the legs three times Friday morning during a Halloween party, according to police.
Nellum was shot in the left thigh and right hamstring and underwent surgery Friday night at California Hospital Medical Center in Los Angeles. Two bullets hit Nellum’s thigh and one hit his hamstring. Doctors said surgery was successful and were hopeful Nellum could resume his track career, according to USC track coach Ron Allice.
Nellum, 19, attended a party at Leonardo’s restaurant on Vermont Ave., a few blocks away from USC. Police said Nellum was shot near the conclusion of the party.
No arrests were made, according to Sgt. Robin Brown of the Los Angeles Police Dept. Southwest Division office.
