LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It's been a wild weekend for University of Louisville students, from the high of celebrating a Heisman victory in New York for star Lamar Jackson to the low of two of his football teammates being shot at a late-night party.

Two players and a 20-year-old woman, who neighbors say is a cheerleader but not a student, were shot at The Retreat off-campus housing complex early Sunday morning.

One player went to Jewish Hospital for treatment, the other to University Hospital along with the female victim. All three have injuries that are not considered life-threatening. One player was shot in the elbow, the other in the leg.

The players have been giving updates on their conditions from their hospital beds, saying they're doing fine. Cards linebackers James Hearns and Henry Famurewa put out messages to friends and family through social media.

Hearns said, "I'm all good everybody, thanks for your prayers, it means a lot to me and the family." 

Famurewa said "Appreciate all the love, wishes and prayers, truly thankful for life today."

The players and the woman were shot when an argument outside the party led shots being fired.

Jayvon Smith, who lives at The Retreat, a few doors from where the party took place, said, "Pretty much there was all this screaming and running people hitting my door, let me in, let me in, like it was a whole bunch of hectic outside, lot of chaos."  

Louisville Metro Police are investigating but haven't made any arrests. They're asking anyone with information to call the anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD.

Cards quarterback Lamar Jackson said Hearns was one of the players wishing him well at the Heisman ceremony in a group text message just hours before the shooting.

For UofL students who just wanted to be able to celebrate Jackson's accomplishments, the shooting is disappointing.

"We had friends that we were texting at The Retreat 'Are you ok?” said student Alli Fuqua. "It's just so sad people celebrating something we're proud of
here at Louisville and then there are always people out there that want to hurt others and have a bad mentality and have to ruin everyone else's happiness and good times." 

UofL said they can't comment on the shooting right now because they are not the investigating agency.
