A former Ellison High School football star was hospitalized after being shot this weekend.

Dominique Hosea, 21, a senior at Texas Southern University, was just weeks from graduating when he was shot and robbed off campus Friday night, according to reports.

Hosea was reported to have caught a man breaking into his car about 10:30 p.m. Friday, after he and his girlfriend left a festival at the college’s campus in Houston.

According to reports, friends said Hosea was trying to protect his girlfriend when the suspect shot him twice.

Hosea was taken to the ICU on Friday. His condition was unavailable Sunday night.
