Bryshon Nellum, upcoming track and field star shot 3x

Unread post by alexalonso » November 14th, 2008, 6:33 pm

from LA Times

Bryshon Nellum, an upcoming track and field star, was shot three times in the leg after a Halloween party.

The Long Beach Poly grad, a 19-year-old sophomore at USC, underwent successful surgery and his coach is optimistic that he'll be able to resume his track career. No arrests had been made.

Nellum was reportedly leaving Leonardo's, a restaurant/club on Vermont and 28th Street, around 2 a.m on Friday morning. Despite the venue's proximity to campus, it isn't usually considered a popular hangout with students. Special events are sometimes held at the cavernous venue, but for most practical purposes it's just outside of the so-called "bubble" where students live within walking distance of campus.

i heard he was claiming 40s Crip and got shot by some Bloods. The LAPD raided a house on 36th & Budlong in connection to this shooting, but they hit the wrong house.

It's a shame that this guy with a future ahead of him got mixed in this mess. It's a good chance this guy might never be the same. I'm hopeful that he will recover but I've seen guys careers end by far less injuries. No matter what, the hood is just too embedded in some people. They just won't let it go for better or worse.

LMAO!!! Where'd you hear that?

This fool went to Poly, his dumb@ss was throwing up babies and sh*t but he never really banged he just hung out. His old track club practiced in baldwin and at most he hung out with some wannabes (30s and 40s) that were around there but he knew them through track and school.

I don't doubt he got shot for claiming though, I haven't heard stuff about him in a couple years but he's not a 40, if he was claiming it would be no different then when he was throwing up signs at Poly.

All these athletes act like retards, track and football were among the worst, these fools never grew up I guess. Idiots.

Sorry I forgot we had a visitor. In LA county, throwing up a set can refer to the act of making hand gestures as a sign of affiliation to a gang.

Babies refers Baby Insane Gang.

And no, I am definitely not affiliated with any gang, and I find choosing to do so a terrible decision.

Let it go? This guy came form a good family (non-banging, morally Christian, working) and had the best of opportunities laid out before him. He got a sports scholarship to a good university and a future in professional and Olympic sports. And this isn't even his area!

if your not affiliated with any gang, why are you constantly dissing various sets throughout los angeles, such as the Stones and others, would you say this to their faces?

HE DIDN'T GROW UP WITH THEM.
HE GREW UP IN LONG BEACH.

What's up with all the assumptions?

P.S. It even says Poly in the article if anyone paid attention he's out of bounds.

that was a blanket statement, i didnt read that much into it, i mean obviously once you become rich famous whatever its not wise to get mixed up in hood shit, i personally would want to move myself and my family out at the earliest possible opportunity as a lot of famous families seem to have caught a bad one, most notably jennifer hudson and the williams family, even games sister, but conversely that may not be possible, members of your family may not want to move etc. and friends you make early on in life tend to be your best friends.
just an opinion.

2 charged in USC athlete's shooting

Two alleged gang members were charged Monday in connection with the Halloween shooting of a USC track athlete, according to the district attorney's office.

Travon Reed, 21, of Los Angeles, and Horasio Kimbrough, 21, of Inglewood were each charged with one count of attempted murder.

Star sprinter Bryshon Nellum, 19, was walking outside a restaurant near the intersection of Vermont Avenue and West Adams Boulevard by the USC campus at 2 a.m. on Oct. 31 when several men pulled up in a car. One of them yelled a gang slogan before shooting Nellum three times in the legs, police said.

Bail for Reed was set at $2 million, and Kimbrough is being held without bail. Both face a maximum of 50 years to life in state prison.

Reading up on Nellum. A lot of talk about his abilities and it sounds like he has/had a great amount of potential as a runner.

It does seemlike he was targeted though. Either that or horrible luck. He's still alive though and may make full recovery so perhaps luckier than first thought.

Hope he gets better...

I will say, however, that Nellum's Grandpa's assertations in the media that people must have attacked his son out of jealousy and envy is a bunch of far-fetched bs.

Like gang members have the time to research Bryshon Nellum and sit there getting angry about how good of a runner he is.

Now if Bryshon was mouthing off on account of his successes, that might be a different story...

Something doesn't add up, although i suppose it rarely does.

Yeah I know.. and remeber when I was on Allhood and I talked about starting ettiquette classes. Well one of the Sisters pushed forward and the first class starts tomarrow on 105th and Western..

Everything ( almost everything ) I talked about a couple of years ago is begining to manifest. The movie night at Chuco's every third Teusday. This month we will be showing Chita's documentery " Girl & Gangs ".

Forgive me if I was curt.. You know that some of you Allhood people have given me a ruff time ever since day one over there..Dealing with y'all was sometimes like being in a civil war On Line..LOL!!!
