Former Indianapolis Colts player Marvin Harrison shot at

Some scary news to report this weekend as Philly.com says former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison was shot at in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Harrison, who spent his entire 13-year NFL career with the Colts was reportedly in a Philadelphia neighborhood when a rather odd scene broke out.

As the former Pro Bowl talent was driving at 3:20 AM, a 38-year-old man flagged down Harrison and begged him for a ride, informing him that he was being attacked. Soon after, gun shots rang out as two men allegedly gave chase on foot, firing shots at Harrison’s truck, striking the tire.

“According to police records obtained by the Daily News, one was described as thin, 5-foot-5 black man who wore gloves, dark clothing and a mask. The other was described as a stocky 6-foot-1 black man who wore all dark clothing and a mask.

Harrison was interviewed by investigators from Southwest Detectives, and pledged to hand over the truck tire that was struck by the bullet.

The victim told police that the burglars stole about $500 in cash from his apartment.

Harrison, who still lives in Philadelphia, could not be reached for comment.”

Thankfully Harrison wasn’t hit by any of the flying bullets and avoided any bodily injury, though his truck will need some minor repairs. The 38-year-old victim he assisted was not hit by any of the stray bullets either.

This of course isn’t the first time that Harrison has been involved in some rather odd off-the-field incidents, though, it appears to be a case of being in the wrong place (or right?) at the wrong time for Harrison today.
