Hopefully Childs makes a full recovery, regardless of any future investigation.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A University of South Florida football player was injured from a shooting.
Spokesperson Lt. Steve Lee described the incident as "possibly road rage in which Childs and another individual got into an argument and each person had a gun, and Childs was shot several times".
Jovanni Jimenez continued driving and his wife told him about the gun.
After being released from the hospital on Monday, the Osceola native was arrested on three counts of aggravated assault and one count of misdemeanor marijuana possession for his involvement in the incident.
Jimenez pulled over at the Eagles Point apartment complex to allow the vehicle to pass. "In fear of his life and his family's life, Jovanni Jimenez fired three rounds at Childs". He has claimed the shooting was in self-defense.

For that reason, and the fact that the younger players identify with us, we are confident that they would choose not to play. Having so few alternatives to field a proper team only reinforces how little support there's been leading up to now.
Jimenez then drove home and called 911. The man driving the auto drew his own gun and fired three times. Police said the found a loaded firearm was recovered from his vehicle along with less than 20 grams of marijuana. The statement added no one else was injured.
Both men have concealed weapons permits, police told ESPN.
