Greg Bryant Jr., a former Notre Dame Fighting Irish football player, has died. He succumbed to his injuries after being shot in his car early Saturday morning.

Bryant along with another man, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, were shot on Interstate 95 in Miami. The authorities are investigation what led to Bryant and his passenger being shot on the side of the interstate.

The 5-foot-11, 197-pounder was taken to the hospital after the police and EMT’s arrived at the scene. He remained in critical condition throughout the day.

Saturday afternoon, there was an early report that claimed that Bryant Jr. had died, according a statement from the UAB Blazers head coach Bill Cook. He said the school was misinformed after getting a statement from a family member.

But while there was confusion about the report, he was continuing to fight for his life in the hospital.

Bryant Jr. was a former Fighting Irish running back, who had academic issues, which led to him being removed from the institution. He then went to ASA Miami, a community college, before announcing in Nov. that he would attend the University of Alabama – Birmingham (UAB).

The UAB Blazers were set to get their football team back after former players fought with the administration — which initially took the team away due to money problems, it said — and other sports. But after consideration and much criticism, the school reinstated the program.
