Former LSU linebacker Tahj Jones, an NFL draft prospect, was shot by former LSU offensive tackle Brandon Winey, according to police.

Per the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Jones was hospitalized and is in serious condition after undergoing surgery.

Winey has been arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder.

"We are aware of (the shooting) and obviously we're praying hard for him and hoping he pulls through," LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette said.

According to police, Winey, a former NFL offensive tackle, "produced a handgun and shot Jones in the abdomen," after a physical altercation between Jones and Winey.

Winey, who played three seasons in the NFL for the Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos and New York Giants, was assigned a $1 million bond.
