Mora Was Accurate: 'SC Player Caught a Bullet on Howard Jones Field in '92

What's Mora apologizing for? A little research backs up the veracity of his remarks:

Jon McGee, a freshman linebacker from Tucson, was struck by gunfire Monday as he waited for football practice to start at USC's Howard Jones Field.

Authorities said McGee was not the intended target but was hit by gang-related gunfire about a quarter-mile away.

McGee, 18, suffered what was described as a "through-and-through" wound, meaning the bullet passed completely through his arm above his left elbow. He was taken to the California Medical Center, where he was expected to remain overnight and undergo tests to determine if any blood vessels were damaged.

That was from an LAT article in 1992 entitled, "USC Player Shot on Practice Field : Football: Police say stray bullet from gang-related incident a quarter-mile away wounds freshman linebacker."
