Parrom shooting suspect named by NYPD


The suspect’s name in the shooting of Arizona forward Kevin Parrom was released by the New York Police Department Thursday evening.

Jason Gonzalez, 19, of Bronx, New York, is wanted in the shooting that injured Parrom’s right leg. Parrom was attacked by two men in his home Saturday before the men fled on foot, according to a release by the department.

Parrom was treated and released at Lincoln Hospital, the report said.

The 6-foot-6 forward was in New York visiting his hospitalized mother. He has returned to Tucson to resume classes though head coach Sean Miller said in a release earlier this week that Parrom’s status on the basketball court won’t be know for a month.
