Mississippi State freshman shot in the back for being at the wrong place at the wrong time

Warren Flemming
The small and mighty linebacker/running back from Hartsfield Academy who will be taking his talents to Mississippi State was shot in the back this week. He is hopeful to return after getting shot.

Warren Flemming is an 18 year old recently committed to Mississippi State and when getting in his vehicle to head to Starkville for his first year with the Bulldogs he was shot. He is now recovering from being shot in the back with a high powered rifle.

According to a the report from WLBT Channel 3, Flemming was able to replay what happened.

He was driving to his aunt’s house to finish packing. He had to be ready to meet his brother at 4:30 a.m. to get on the road. But Sunday night as he turned on to Cromwell from Ridgeway Street, he heard gunshots. He felt an impact and his back went numb as a bullet ripped through his lower back. He made it to her driveway and tried to get out of the car. He immediately pitched forward into the grass.

The bullet missed his spine by two inches. Not only that, a jersey from his days at Hartfield Academy that he had put over his seat helped divert the bullet’s trajectory just enough to save his spine, according to the report.

Please Pray for a speedy recovery for Flemming.
