A recovery fund has been launched for former Notre Dame star Louis Nix III, who was the victim of a shooting in an attempted robbery.

Nix played for Notre Dame from 2011-2013 and had 14 sacks during his career. The defensive lineman, known as “Irish Chocolate,” later played two seasons in the NFL but had knee issues that hurt his career.

Nix recorded a video that he shared on Tuesday night. He said he had been shot while putting air in his tires.
