Oregon State issued a statement that said everyone in the team’s traveling party is safe. The Beavers are currently on a five-game tour of Spain.
Assistant coach Gregg Gottlieb posted to Facebook: “We are all luckily OK. Our hotel/restaurant is located right on Las Ramblas. This tragedy happened right in front of us as our team just sat down for pre-game meal. Thoughts and prayers for all those that are were hurt.”
Spanish police have confirmed they are investigating the incident in Barcelona’s historic Las Ramblas district as a terror attack. The area is a popular summer tourist spot.
Oregon State said it has not yet determined the remaining schedule for the team, which was supposed to be on the exhibition tour until Aug. 25.
