BLAIRSVILLE, Ga – Class of 2018 graduate and cross-country record breaker, Lance Underwood was the victim of an accidental drive-by shooting in middle Georgia.
Underwood was reportedly driving through a bad neighborhood in the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 11, when a bullet pierced the car door. It struck him in the femur.
