Two Vandy football players shot over stolen phone

Vanderbilt head football coach Derek Mason has suspended the three players involved in a Monday shooting at a Target in Nashville.

After Tennyson saw the stolen cellphone listed for sale online, he set up a meeting with the seller and brought Daley and Coppet with him when trying to retrieve the phone.

Later in the night, Tennyson spotted his phone for sale on the internet and arranged a meeting the sellers, presuming they were the same individuals who had allegedly stolen his phone. The gunfire left Daley and Coppet wounded and allowed the men suspected of stealing the phone to also drive away in the auto the Vanderbilt players had used to travel to the parking lot.

Coppet got out of Daley's Toyota with the pellet pistol in hand, according to police, when a man pulled up next to him in his Buick and shot at the three with an actual pistol.

Daley was shot in the leg and left with non-critical injuries.

None of the Vanderbilt players are charged with a crime because, in case this isn't obvious, brandishing a pellet gun isn't illegal.

When Coppet got out of Tennyson's auto holding the pellet gun, the suspects in the other vehicle started shooting with a handgun and a shotgun. One man in the Buick responded to the pellet gun by exiting his vehicle and firing a real handgun; another fired a shotgun at the players.

The gunmen then fled, one in the Buick, and one in Daley's vehicle. They did not say if or when Daley and Tennyson got out of the Toyota.

Last season, Tennyson made the SEC Academic Honor Roll while appearing in eight games for the Commodores. He had four rushes for 28 yards but did not catch a pass. Coppet is an 18-year-old redshirt freshman from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
