BLAKELY, Ga. -- New Orleans defensive end Charles Grant was stabbed in the neck, and a pregnant woman was shot and killed early Sunday in an altercation at a nightclub in southwest Georgia.
As first reported by Adam Schefter on NFL Network, Grant was assaulted and had an injury to his neck. Capt. Will Caudill of the Early County Sheriff's Office confirmed the report and said Grant was transported to Early Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and later released.
Early County Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a fight around 1 a.m. Sunday at a nightclub in Blakely, which is about 190 miles southwest of Atlanta.
"We're aware of the situation and are gathering information," New Orleans Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. "Until we complete the process, we will have no further comment."
In the incident, 23-year-old Korynda Reed of Blakely was shot, police said. She was transported to Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan, Ala., where she and her unborn child died.
No arrests have been made, and the case remains under investigation.
