Oakland Athletics baseball prospect shot in New York restaurant parking lot, in critical condition

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) – Authorities say a baseball prospect has been shot and critically wounded in the parking lot of a suburban New York fast-food restaurant.

Police say 23-year-old Michael Nolan was shot multiple times early Friday outside a Burger King in Yonkers, New York.

WCBS-TV reports Nolan attended Oklahoma City University and was drafted by the Oakland A’s.

His father, Jimmy Nolan, told the television station his son is in critical condition and “not doing good.”

Police believe the shooting may be related to an argument several days ago about a drag race.

Investigators believe the shooting wasn’t random, but are still trying to determine whether Nolan was targeted.

Nolan, who is 6 foot 7 and weighs 215 pounds, is a graduate of Saunders Trades and Technical High School in Yonkers.
