Update 4:32 p.m.

Last night, an incident occurred following the completion of our baseball game at Muskingum University (OH), when a member of the team returned to the dugout to retrieve a forgotten personal item. Upon doing so, an incident occurred involving an individual with a firearm, resulting in the student-athlete receiving nonlife-threatening injuries. He was treated at a local hospital and has now been released into the care of his parents. The rest of the team is safe and has now returned safely to Olivet. Saturday and Sunday’s scheduled games have been cancelled.

The alleged assailant is in custody and has been identified by law enforcement as Franklin Grayson, a 2021 graduate of The University of Olivet. Law enforcement also stated they have no indication of a relationship between the parties and that there was no known or ongoing threat to the student-athlete, the The University of Olivet community, or other individuals. No further details were reported.

Also note, while there may be various comments made across social media, the College is committed to only reporting verified information or information as it is confirmed by law enforcement authorities.

The College is in communication with the student-athletes and their parents and will continue to provide support in the days ahead. This is a challenging time for all involved and our attention is focused on supporting the student-athletes and staff members. Please keep your fellow Comets in your thoughts and prayers.
