King-5 in Seattle is reporting former Trail Blazer All-Star Brandon Roy is recovering from a gunshot wound he suffered while at a party in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Roy was apparently an innocent bystander in a gang-related shooting.

The retired star, who just finished his first year coaching Nathan Hale High School to the Washington State Championship, was reportedly OK enough to fly home to Washington and is recuperating at home.

The Trail Blazers released the following statement:

“Like many others, we’re just learning of the injury suffered by former Trail Blazers player Brandon Roy in a shooting over the weekend in California. According to those reports, Brandon was wounded as a bystander, but is expected to recover. Our thoughts are prayers are with Brandon and his family."
