Isaiah Cousins, a former Mount Vernon basketball standout and current guard with the University of Oklahoma Sooners, was wounded Tuesday night when a errant bullet from one of two warring violent street gangs struck him in the back of the shoulder, police said.

Mount Vernon Police Commissioner Terrance Raynor said Cousins is expected to survive his wounds, but he was not sure if it would affect his basketball career.

Cousins was taken to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx for treatment.

Cousins was with a group near 7 West Third Street – Levister Towers – that had nothing to do with the gang warfare, police said. The Goonies and Gunnas were about a half block to a block away – around Third Street and Third Avenue – when one fired a shot, striking the athlete. (Lower Hudson Journal News)
