Though the University has not identified the victim, published reports indicate it was former U-V-A football player Jamaine Winborne.
Police say his wound is serious, but not life threatening.
It could be career- threatening though.
Winborne signed a contract with the New York Giants and was supposed to report to mini-camp next week.
The shooting will likely end his chances with the N-F-L team because the contract was contingent upon Winborne passing a physical.
Three current U-V-A players were arrested for a disturbance early Wednesday morning as police tried to investigate the shooting.
