According to TMZ, a highly recruited football player is in trouble with the law. Luke Hill attempted to kill his former girlfriend’s new boyfriend.
The former Oregon Ducks recruit was arrested this week. He has been charged with attempted murder.
In total, Hill is facing eight charges. One of them is the attempted murder in the first degree.
The other charges include assault – first degree, reckless endangerment, firearm use in a violent crime, assault weapon use, possession of firearm – minor, attempted-loaded handgun on person, and handgun on person.
The preliminary hearing has been set for June 19th at 8:45 am.
Hill signed with the Ducks during the early signing period in December 2019. DuckTerritory.com previously reported during the spring that Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal said that Hill would not be a part of the program.
Cristobal would not give a reason for the departure from the program. Thus, he was not scheduled to enroll at the school.
Hill chose the Ducks over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers, Florida Gators, Maryland Terrapins, Oklahoma Sooners, and the Penn State Nittany Lions. For the 2020 recruiting class, he was considered the 15th-best cornerback in the country.
TMZ is reporting that the victim was playing basketball when a white car with window tint went pass in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The incident happened at approx. 7:30 pm EST on Monday.
The person in the car shot at the victim — who has not been named at this time. Despite being shot at, the victim was not hit and told the authorities that he was not hit.
Prior to the incident, TMZ is reporting that Hill sent ‘menacing’ messages to his ex-girlfriend. During the messages, Hill claimed to his ex that he was ‘trying to find out where the victim lives.’
Through their investigation, the authorities identified Hill as the suspect in the cases. Once the authorities reached Hill’s residence, they found a white vehicle that was pulling up — which matched the description into the one that shot at the victim.
He was initially detained in the investigation. After they obtained a search warrant, three firearms were home at the home, including a Glock 22 gun that was reportedly in a hidden compartment in his bedroom.
TMZ said that this Glock 22 gun was actually hidden by Oregon football recruiting letters.
The investigation also matched casings that was found at the victim’s house that matched Hill’s gun in his room. Hill was then arrested.
