Multiple reports say Kansas City Chiefs first-round draft pick, Patrick Mahomes, was robbed at gunpoint on Friday.

According to KLTV, Mahomes and three others were getting out of a vehicle in his hometown of Tyler, Texas, when a man followed them into their driveway, got of a car and demanded valuables while indicating that he had a gun in his waistband.

Police were able to locate the suspects and all property was returned, CBS 19 reports. Nobody was hurt.

TMZ Sports reports that the man believed to have had the gun was a 34-year-old "tiny man" standing 5-feet-4 and weighing 128 pounds.

The Chiefs traded up to take Mahomes with the No. 10 pick in last month's NFL Draft and he's considered the air apparent to Alex Smith at quarterback.

Mahomes is the son of former Twins pitcher Pat Mahomes and godson of 21-year MLB pitcher LaTroy Hawkins, who currently works as a scout for the Twins.
