Former H.D. Woodson star and Minnesota Vikings draft pick Jaylen Twyman talked to FOX 5 Tuesday night – one day after he was one of four people shot in Northeast D.C.

Twyman – who played college football at Pitt – was still in the hospital on Tuesday, but said he’s walking around and expect to be "110%" after the ordeal in the 300 block of 50th Street.

According to Twyman, he’s only in bandages and gauze after an injury that he described as a flesh wound, and it won’t impact his football career.

When the shooting occurred on Monday, he’d gone to pick up a friend for dinner when gunshots rang out.
