The country mourned Monday after learning about the mass shooting deaths at the Washington Navy Yard. For a few scary moments, Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Morgan feared for his mother's safety.
Morgan told reporters that his mom works on the same floor of the Navy Yard building where the shooting occurred, according to The Washington Post. Morgan, who grew up in the area, said he was unable to reach his mother after he learned of the shooting.
Eventually Morgan confirmed through a Redskins spokesperson that his mother was safe. Before that happened, Morgan told reporters that he had a similar experience on Sept. 11, 2001 when his mother worked at the Pentagon.
"It happened in 9/11 when she was at the Pentagon," Morgan said. "It happened to me when I was at Virginia Tech, the shooting down there. Kind of all too familiar with it unfortunately, I'm just praying for the best and hoping to hear from her soon," Morgan said before he knew she was out of harm's way.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to all the victims and their families.
He is a Wide Receiver for the Redskins, after four years with the 49ers.
Oh. Can’t wait for an update from the update on the brother in law of last years hopscotch grand champion.
Your sympathy for people from the United States is daunting. You weren’t force to read about it.
Like you would give a rats ass about that woman if she (who wasn’t shot, obviously) wasn’t related to some guy who plays a game on tee vee. Will be be getting a lot of fawning adulation for the plumber’s sister who also didn’t get shot?
I think I’ll stay out of any place that either one of them hangs out.
I don’t think it matters who he is. (it’s not like he’s a star player) It was an interesting story about someone, could have just as easily been a plumber)
