The Illinois native guard, who is a freshman, does not appear to be in critical condition.

Either late Friday night or early Saturday morning was when the shooting took place. MSU coach Tom Izzo announced that Fears had surgery in a statement that was made public on Saturday.

“Jeremy underwent surgery this morning and is resting comfortably,” Izzo said in a statement. “While there is much we still don’t know, my focus is supporting Jeremy on his road to recovery.”

Fox News Digital reached out to the Joliet Police Department but received no response right away.

According to a police statement that ESPN was able to receive, a 19-year-old lady and an 18-year-old guy were both hurt in the incident. According to the authorities, the woman sustained a cut to her pelvis, and the man was hurt in his thigh.

Additionally, the woman’s wounds were not deemed to be life-threatening.

Authorities say the man and the woman were inside a house with acquaintances when a gunman who had not been identified came in and started shooting. Whether either of the victims was the shooter’s intended target is still unknown.

Although the victims’ identities were kept under wraps by the authorities, sources told ESPN that the report’s specifics match what they know about the Fears incident.

The investigation is still underway, and police are still looking for the suspect.

Fears recorded a career-high ten assists in the Stony Brook game on Thursday after coming off the bench. The Spartans have several days off before taking on Indiana State on December 30.

Fears was a five-star recruit out of high school and a McDonald’s All-American. This season, he has participated in all 12 of MSU’s games. In a game, the 18-year-old averages 3.5 points and 3.3 assists.
