Wayde Sims, an LSU b-ball player from Baton Rouge, was shot amid a conflict outside a Subway eatery opposite Southern's football stadium around 1:25 a.m. ET Friday.

A video gotten by WBRZ demonstrates a few men battling in the road outside the eatery. A gunfire can be heard, and Sims can be seen tumbling to the ground before other men got away.

As per Baton Rouge police, Sims was transported to a neighborhood healing center, where he passed on from a shot injury.

"We are all devastated," LSU coach Will Wade said in a statement. "We need your prayers for Wayde, for his family, for all of us. We are heartbroken."

Swim said he was advised in regards to the shooting early Friday morning and after that went to the clinic. He told the group at 6:30 a.m. when they had initially planned a morning exercise.

"We want to remember Wayde, what a great person he was,"

"Besides the fact he had the best impression of me on the team, he was just an unbelievable person and was continuing to grow and had just done a great job building a bridge with our team. That's what makes it so tough for all of us, and for our team as well, is everybody liked him. Anybody he came in contact with, automatically just loved him, loved his personality. He was just a blast to be around at all times."
