BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Former Maryland Terrapins basketball player Dino Gregory took to Instagram Monday morning to share the story of an heroic act committed by his brother Daniel at Sunday’s Black Lives Matter protests in Seattle.

In the post, Gregory says that his brother ran after and stopped a car that was attempting to run into a group of protestors. In the process, Daniel was shot and had to be taken to the hospital for surgery.

The 27-year-old Daniel is said to be fine and Dino expressed pride in him for saving hundreds of lives with his actions. CBS affiliate KIRO-TV reported that the man driving the car has been taken into police custody.

The Maryland basketball program took to Twitter to say that it is proud of Daniel as well.

    Wow spin much? 180 spin job here at cBS. Good thing there’s a full video that shows what actually happened. How he ATTACKED the driver AFTER the car was stopped and was shot in what looks like self defense. Hero? He was head and shoulders in the car assaulting the driver AFTER the car was stopped. And he had nothing to do with stopping the car in the first place. There was never any indication the car was going to drive into protestors. Makes no sense just like the “news” coverage in this cBS story. You’re a joke.
