COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State defensive tackle Haskell Garrett has been released from the hospital after being shot in the face over the weekend.

A spokesman for the football program confirms Garrett was released Monday.

According to a Columbus police report, Garrett told officers he was shot when he intervened in a dispute between a male and a female who were "arguing and being aggressive."

Garrett said the male then pulled out a gun and fired a shot that police said passed through both of Garrett's cheeks.

Garrett told officers that he ran to a friend's apartment, where police found him early Sunday after following a trail of blood. Police say the shooting is still being investigated.

Garrett graduated from Bishop Gorman High School in 2017.
