Former Pitt DT Jaylen Twyman Wounded in Washington D.C. Shooting, Expected to Make Full Recovery



Former Pitt defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman was one of three men wounded during a shooting in Washington, D.C. on Monday, but is expected to make a full recovery, his agent told ESPN.

Twyman was shot four times while visiting an aunt, agent Drew Rosenhaus said to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Rosenhaus said that Twyman is not expected to require surgery and that x-rays for broken bones were negative.

“Wrong place, wrong time,” Rosenhaus told Schefter. “In talking to him today, he’s going to be OK – that’s all that matters. We’re thankful he’s OK. He will make a full recovery.”

D.C. police confirmed that there was a shooting investigation in the 300 block of 50th Street N.E. just after 5 p.m. on Monday. There has been no public update on the investigation.

Twyman, 21, is a Washington, D.C. native. He was elected in the sixth round of the 20221 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings in April and had participated in the team’s mandatory minicamp in Eagan, Minnesota last week.

Twyman joined Pitt in 2017 out of H.D. Woodson High School in Washington. He was named a consensus All-American after his 2019 season and chose to opt out of the 2020, citing family concerns.
