Three football players from the University of Southern Mississippi are in fair condition in a Hattiesburg hospital after they were shot at a bar early Sunday morning.

Linebacker Martez Smith, LB Tim Green and DL Deddrick Jones all got shot by what police are terming...a possible "Gang" related shooting.

The club that the three were at, according to reports is not a nice place. Police are frequently called there and the club has had to add extra security to take care of the large crowds.

As for the team, they had just returned after upsetting 25th ranked (or 12th in the Dirty Dozen), UCF in Orlando. They are 8-2 on the season with a good chance at winning the Eastern part of Conference USA. 

Smith is a senior, Green and Jones are both juniors at the school.

Here are school officials discussing what happened.
