A story making national headlines has a connection to the Rochester region.

A viral video, viewed millions of times already, shows college basketball player Kewan Platt taking a cheap shot during a game.


Platt used his elbow to smash an opponent right in the face. It happened during a game Tuesday night in Fitchburg, Massachusetts.

Platt is from Boston but spent two years at Monroe Community College playing basketball at the school for two seasons.

Fitchburg State University officials say Platt has been suspended indefinitely. He has also been banned from campus.
