"(Tyquone) went to a party, he pushed some guy at the party and some guy came back and shot the house up," Adams said. "(Tyquone) was shot. He and one of my former other players, DeShaun King, one of my players from three years ago."

Adams confirmed Greer was shot in the leg but couldn't confirm which leg it was.

A source at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County also confirmed Greer is checked in as a patient at the hospital and is listed in stable condition.

"I can tell you that he is here and that he's in very stable condition. He's doing very well," the source said of Greer.

Greer, a 6-foot-7 senior forward has been a mainstay in the Orr lineup since his sophomore season and has attracted Division I interest throughout his high school career.
