Two members of the Vanderbilt college football team were shot in a Target parking lot Monday night and a third was involved in a plan to retrieve one of the players stolen cellphones, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

According to the AP, one of the players said to police that they brought a pellet gun with them "to help get the phone back", and upon arriving, Coppet got out of Daley's Toyota with the pellet pistol in his hand.

They were reportedly working to recover a stolen cell phone.

. The gunfire left Daley and Coppet wounded and allowed the men suspected of stealing the phone to also drive away in the vehicle the Vanderbilt players had used to travel to the parking lot.

When Coppet exited Daley's vehicle with the pellet pistol, a man in a black Buick next to the trio fired a real pistol and another man fired a shotgun.

Daley was shot in the leg and left with non-critical injuries. In the parking lot, the group pulled up next to the seller's vehicle, and that's when Coppet allegedly got out of the auto with a pellet gun. Coppet is an 18-year-old redshirt freshman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
