    Default Breaking: Marvin Harrison involved in shooting.

    Just saw it on ESPN. Details are scant. Apparently it involved a gun Marvin owned, but he wasn't otherwise involved.

    More to come.

    ESPN guy is reporting his sources said Marvin Harrison was involved in a fight outside a bar on Tuesday morning in Philly that he is a part owner of. He might have beat someone up pretty bad, and shorty afterwords shots were fired. It's a custom made gun that Marvin owns. He said he didn't fire any shots, but Penn. state law says the owner is charged if a gun they own is used in a crime.

    No wittinesses are naming Marvin the shooter right now, but it's possible someone will. He hasn't been arrested or charged yet. 2 people were shot.

    I am so scared right now.. I just saw that too.. But they didn't say that it was just his gun.. They said the guy he was fighting with got shot and they don't know who the shooter was.. Maybe Marvin.

    This isn't what we would think of as Marvin like..

    Marvin apparently has 25 registered guns in his name. Allegedly, there are witnesses potentially ID'ing Marvin Harrison as the shooter.

    WHAT THE HELL

    No need to jump to conclusions on this story just yet. Let's worry if he gets arrested.

    Report: Police probe Harrison in Philadelphia shooting

    ESPN.com news services

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison is under investigation in his hometown of Philadelphia in a shooting that took place late Tuesday afternoon, a source close to the investigation told Anthony Gargano of Philadelphia's WIP Radio.

    The shooting reportedly occurred outside a North Philadelphia bar owned by Harrison. Harrison has yet to be arrested or charged with the crime. The source said the alleged victim came into the bar, Playmakers, around 5 p.m. and engaged in an argument with Harrison, who was at the bar. The victim then left the bar, heading to his car, with Harrison following. Gunfire broke out, the victim was hit in the hand, and a young girl was slightly injured by flying glass from a car that apparently was hit by a bullet.

    Police came to scene, but the victim did not identify a shooter. On Wednesday, according to the source, ballistic tests showed that the gun that had fired the shots was a custom-made Belgian weapon, and police determined that Harrison owned such a gun. Police then went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison to question him about the gun. Harrison admitted owning such a weapon, but claimed it never left his suburban Philadelphia home.

    However, the source said the gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed that it had fired seven bullets that matched those found at the scene. The source said police were contacted Friday by an attorney representing a second alleged victim in the shooting, and police are now waiting for that individual to come forward.

    Calls from ESPN to reach Harrison, his agent and the Colts for comment had not been returned.

    Nothing wrong with being armed imo but 25 guns is quite a bit. My guess is that some guys were making trouble in his club and they were carrying heat and they probably fired on some people so Marvin/armed bodyguards at the club with Marvins gun returned fire in self defense..although that is pure speculation. I just can't see Marvin starting trouble for no good reason as he is a high character guy.

    Hopefully nobody was killed.

    Rotoworld:

    ESPN and WIP Radio Host Anthony Gargano are reporting that detectives are investigating a shooting potentially involving Marvin Harrison. They are investigating whether Harrison was the shooter.
    Harrison owns a tavern called "Playmakers" in Philadelphia. Gargano claims that witnesses allege Harrison and a bar patron got into an altercation. As the fight ensued, gunfire was exchanged outside with the victim reportedly shot in the hand. Harrison, who owns 25 guns, reportedly acknowledged owning the type of gun that was used in the shooting. Harrison has met with detectives multiple times, and after initially denying the gun was in the area, now admits it's his gun, but says he wasn't the shooter. Gargano is the sole source here, but this sure looks ugly. No witnesses have come forward saying Harrison was the shooter, although Gargano claims they are coming. No files have been charged.

    Marvin Harrison Accused in Shooting

    Michael David SmithPosted May 2nd 2008 3:53PM by Michael David Smith

    Filed under: Colts, Indianapolis, Philadelphia, NFL Police Blotter, Breaking News, The Word


    Anthony Gargano of WIP radio in Philadelphia is on ESPN this afternoon reporting that Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison is accused of being involved in a recent shooting at a bar Harrison owns in his home town of Philadelphia.

    According to Gargano, police have uncovered a gun registered to Harrison in connection with the incident. His report further states that a fistfight broke out when Harrison escorted a man out of his bar, called Playmakers. When the man fled, gunfire was exchanged. The man's car was struck by a bullet and his hand was grazed, Gargano reported.

    Neither Harrison nor anyone else has been arrested in connection with the incident. Gargano reports that police are awaiting witnesses coming forward, but that one witness is prepared to testify that Harrison was the shooter.

    Harrison is generally known as a quiet, reserved person who does not get involved in off-field trouble.

    They must mean David Harrison. All the Colts players are perfect.

    Seriously though, why does that article just throw in there, that Indianapolis is also home of the Indiana Pacers

    It was a poorly executed attempt at levity... but since this story could turn out to be fairly serious I have deleted that reference.

    Jamaal Tinsley was probably the gunner, and robbed poor Marvin.

    Seriously I hope whatever the truth is to come out.

    LOL.

    Loved it how people talk about how they can't stand watching the NBA anymore because it's all about thuggery.

    Then meanwhile these people are perfectly fine with the NFL despite the likes of Rae Carruth, Lawrence Phillips, Michael Vick, the Cinncinati Bengals et al...

    Didn't Dominic Rhodes get a DUI right after the Superbowl? We know the kind of hell that would raise if he was a Pacer player but he's an NFL guy playing for the Colts so no biggie.

    Rhodes was charged with a DUI a week before his contract with the Colts technically expired, though weeks after the season was over and his locker was cleaned out. He was not re-signed.

    The drunk driving charges were later dropped when Rhodes plead guilty to reckless driving.

    Yes, because the Superbowl was his last game with the Colts and he probably wasn't going to be re-signed because of the cap situation. Still, my point stands. The guy skated. It's hardly a big deal at all when an NFL player gets a DUI.

    He did not skate. He had no previous record of anything of that nature, the police had issues in handling his evidence, and his BAC at the time of arrest was .09 - .01 over the legal limit. The DUI charge against him was dropped in exchange for a reckless driving plea. He was fined $1,000 in exchange for the guilty plea during a brief appearance in Marion County Criminal Court. Rhodes also was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but 178 were suspended and he received credit for two days. The prosecutor handling the case was pleased with the result - typically not a reaction when prosecutors think anyone is getting a break.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2807151

    Certainly have no interest in defending Rhodes as anyone driving drunk or recklessly should face some sort of legal consequence - but it's not really entirely fair to compare his one situation to the litany of involvements the Pacers have had with law enforcement the last few years.

    Now, if people bring up the OTHER Colts who have been involved - then have it - there have definitely been a few. But it's just not fair to bring up a guy who the team parted ways with after his legal entanglement and reckless driving and says it's the same as what's been going in Larry and Donnie's House of Crazy.




    On topic - this might be quite an interesting day for the Colts.

    As far as public perception goes, he did. That's all I'm saying. I'm not singling him out among any other athlete who's gotten in some kind of trouble, minor or major.

    I guess my point is this:

    When an NBA player gets in some kind of trouble, it's cause for peoples' eyes to roll everywhere and give them an excuse to say "I can't watch this league anymore because of these spoiled thugs."

    When an NFL player gets in similar trouble (and NFL players have gotten in far worse trouble), people no doubt also see them as spoiled thugs, but of course it
    does absolutely NOTHING to hinder them from still watching the football and the NFL.

    The NFL really has emerged as the nation's new past time. It's truly part of the nation's psyche. It's a monster league, and people are more readily willing to overlook the kinds of off the field problems these players get into moreso than other sports leagues. They talk about wishing athletes weren't such spoiled thugs, but they'll never stop watching this particular league no matter how many thugs there are.

    And hell, I'm one of these people. I still watch the NFL despite all that thuggery. Just pointing out the obvious hypocrisy a lot of society demonstrates when talking about the NBA and their image problems.

    Okay, fair enough. I can't speak to the NBA as I pay no attention to it anymore.

    I just don't like the idea that people think athletes usually get these huge breaks because they're celebrities - it's usually quite the opposite. Most people in Rhodes' situation would not have been fined near $1,000 - and might have had to plead to anything because of all the issues with the case and borderline BAC.

    There's just a societal disconnect it seems between what we think people deserve and what most people actually get.

    The weapon being a custom Belgian piece, coupled with him owning 25 guns, makes me think he's a collector. Nothing wrong with that I suppose.

    The victim who was shot in the hand was specifically questioned if Harrison shot him, to which he replied no. It's been over 72 hours and the victim who can allegedly ID Marvin as the shooter still has not come forward. Seems fishy.

    Of course, if this were Pac Man I readily admit I would have a different opinion.

    My son got a tube to blow in to start the car ($100/mo rental) a three month suspended term, and a Fine all of which totalled $3000.00 for a FIRST OFFENSE where he was pulled over immediately upon leaving his job and his car was towed by the brother of the deputy that nabbed him. Cost him his job and eventually his marriage (money trouble). He tested 1.0 back when that was the limit.

    UB, I dont' think anyone is claiming the Colts are perfect. If they are they have a short memory. Every time I see Tony Saragosa on TV the first thing I think of is when he got caught at White Castle with a gun. And then there was Jack Trudeau's fight at a bar. Art Schlester has spent more time in the Hamilton County jail than he spend wearing a Colts uniform. Don't even get me started on Mustafah Muhammad.

    As for Marvin Harrison I guess it's true that it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for.
