UWG Student in Stable Condition After Tuscaloosa Shooting – The WOLF News

By Bode Brooks, The WOLF News Director

A University of West Georgia student is in stable condition after being involved in a shooting in Tuscaloosa, Alabama over the weekend. Andrew Njoroge was rushed to DCH Regional Medical Center after receiving two gunshot wounds to the face, where he was later airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham, according to multiple media outlets.

Njoroge was reportedly visiting Tuscaloosa with friends for the Alabama-LSU football game. At approximately 2:15 a.m. Sunday morning, witnesses reported seeing Njoroge interacting with three men in an area referred to as “the Strip” near the University of Alabama campus. Reports suggest the sale of narcotics was taking place, according to Tuscaloosanews.com. Witnesses claimed seeing a white four-door vehicle leaving the area after hearing gunshots. Njoroge was found face down in a parking lot in critical condition. As of Tuesday, Njoroge’s condition has been updated to stable. Police are still searching for the suspects involved in the shooting.

WLBB reports UWG officials have been in contact with Njoroge’s family and are cooperating with Tuscaloosa police to work out more details surrounding the shooting.

Njoroge is a sophomore majoring in International Economic Affairs and a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. A GoFundMe campaign has started to raise money for his recovery and as of this publication has raised $5,415. A link to the page can be found here
