A student at N.C. Central University was shot in the back at a house off campus on Sunday evening, but he was expected to survive, police said.
George Wesley McGue is a senior and was listed as a defensive lineman on the Eagles’ football team last fall.
McGue was shot at a house in the 400 block of Formosa Avenue shortly after 6 p.m., according to police.
No arrests have been announced, though police say the person who fired the shot was also at the house.
Formosa Avenue runs west off Fayetteville Street across from the N.C. Central University campus.
