Former players of a college baseball coach who was shot in Compton are rallying to help their former mentor Thursday in his time of need.

Compton College Head Coach Shannon Williams was shot in his legs on Sunday near his home in Compton, and a group of his current and former players and students have set up a fundraising account to help him as he recovers from his injuries.

According to a report from CBS 2, more than $11,000 has been raised for Williams in almost 24 hours.

Police believe the shooting to have been a random act of violence.
