St. Louis Rams player, Stedman Bailey, is in stable yet critical condition this morning after sustaining gunshot wounds to the head while in South Florida.

According to the Miami Gardens Police Department, Bailey was sitting in a car with family member, Antwan Reeves, and two children on Tuesday night when another car pulled up and opened fire.

Apparently, Stedman was hit while blocking bullets from the minors. He was he only one hit.

The wide receiver, which is currently serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance abuse policy, was rushed into emergency surgery and is said to now be in stable condition.

“We are aware Stedman Bailey was involved in an incident this evening,” the Rams said in a statement. “We have spoken with Stedman and he is in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. We are gathering facts about the situation and will provide updates as we learn more.”

Police are currently investigating the situation.

Three days ago, Stedman, who was a third-round draft pick of the Rams in 2013, shared a touching message on Instagram after visiting his high school alma mater. In the post, the athlete shared that he had just spoken out about the challenges of being an athlete.

“I had a chance to talk to an amazing group of young football players at Flanagan High and my alma mater, Miramar High,” he wrote. “I had a great time bonding with these guys, sharing our life experiences, and talking to them about the highs & the lows of being an athlete. These kids had a really positive impact on me & I’ll definitely be back soon to check in on y’all! Good luck to both squads in their future endeavors!”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
