USF player cut from football team after road-rage shooting

Posted March 29, 2017

USF senior safety Hassan Childs has been arrested after being injured in a shooting Saturday night.

Information from: Tampa Bay Times (St. Petersburg, Fla.), http://www.tampabay.com.

Police state that Jimenez claimed Childs pointed a gun at him while he was in his auto with his wife and child. As he pulled over again, his wife warned him that she had seen the driver flash a gun. That's when Jimenez - a concealed carry permit-holder - says he feared for his family and fired three shots from his own weapon at Childs.

In fact, Jimenez himself called the police after the shooting, telling cops that he shot Childs in the upper arm and torso only after the defensive back allegedly pointed a gun at him, his wife and child. The 22-year-old fifth-year senior is recovering and in stable condition.

When Childs continued to tailgate Mr. Jimenez's vehicle, he again pulled to the side of the road and stopped his auto. The Hillsborough Stat Attorney's Office has yet to decide if charges will be filed against Jimenez.

USF football player Hassan Childs had a weekend to forget.

Childs has no criminal record in Florida.

"Thankfully, Hassan is in stable condition and being well cared for, and no one else was inured". He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of obstructing or opposing an officer without violence in March 2012.

Childs appeared in eight games in 2016, recording 16 tackles while also participating in special teams as a punt returner.
