Marvin Harrison's accuser shot seven times

NFL_Harrison1.jpgAs several of you have pointed out regarding the decision of ESPN not to report on the civil suit against Ben Roethlisberger, ESPN previously departed from its supposed policy of no reporting on civil cases absent a criminal complaint in the case of the shooting that allegedly involved former Colts receiver Marvin Harrison.

ESPN was all over that story from the get-go, even though the only official legal proceeding against Harrison was and is a civil suit.

And so we wonder whether ESPN will mention the latest development in the pending non-criminal case.

According to FOX 29 in Philly, the man who accused Harrison of shooting him has been shot again.  Seven times.

The incident occurred earlier today as 33-year-old Dwight Dixon was leaving a Chinese restaurant.  He is listed in critical condition.

Police are looking for the shooter; they reportedly believe that the incident might be related to another shooting that occurred over the weekend.

We assume that police also will attempt to rule out whether the shooting is related to the shooting that allegedly involved Harrison.  After all, the civil case can never become a criminal case if the guy who claims he was shot by Harrison isn’t able to testify at any criminal trial.

Obviously, we’re not saying that Harrison was involved in either shooting.  But the police wouldn’t be doing their jobs properly if they didn’t rule out anyone and everyone who might have a motive to put seven slugs into Dixon’s body.

Bottom line?  Someone saw fit to shoot Dixon seven times.

    Note to self: Don’t get on Marvin Harrison’s bad side.

    Why no love for ESPN? Did they not give you a job when you wanted one or something?
    Who really cares?

    At least if he pulls through he gets to be a rapper now.

    Florio, are you implying that Harrison, or an associate of Harrison, shot the guy accusing Harrison of shooting him a few months ago in order to kill him and thus get Harrison off the hook? The sad thing is that you probably managed to sway a few juries into reasonable doubt with crap like this.
    It’s amazing that you will admit to being swayed into liking Michael Irvin based solely on his HOF speech despite his long track record of immoral and illegal activities, but you have no problem associating Marvin Harrison with immoral and illegal activities despite a) the lack of criminal charges, and b) the fact that he’s stayed out of trouble throughout his career.
    Good grief.

    Found this on ESPN’s website in the Fantasy area:
    Player News
    NFL MLB NBA RACING NHL
    Ben Roethlisberger
    Roethlisberger (knee) has been accused of sexually assaulting a Nevada hotel employee, the Pittsburgh Channel reports.
    Fantasy Spin: The incident in question occurred in July of 2008. The Steelers are aware of the charge. Roethlisberger has denied the accusation.

    Or the opposite too!

    Maybe it’s because ESPN sucks taint.

    You know, if people are often shooting at you, perhaps you should be less of a jerk?
    How’s that working out for you, Florio?

    i said it before and will do so again. espn has a serious race issue. because you are dealing with the Pigsburg Squealers and Jen there is a different standard. Its as easy to see as black and white.

    Hmmm,
    Harrison was such a weenie that he often went to the ground before any major contact would be made…. and his mustache always had him looking to be like a white guy born in a black guys body…
    who would have guessed this was some hard thug? certainly not the DB’s who always wanted to knock his head off but couldn’t because he goes right to his knees after a catch…
    what a turd… guilty or not.

    IO’ll bet that both the shooter and the “victim” both had marijuanna in their system.
    We must crack down on that evil drug that causes so much harm to society.
    If you ever see anyone with marijuanna call the Police immediately and get that criminal druggie off the streets.

  12. Rasputin says: Jul 21, 2009 7:06 PM

    7 times. Either Dixon is one tough SOB, or the shooter was Tony Romo.

  13. kuligula says: Jul 21, 2009 7:14 PM

    Breaking news reports that the shooter was last seen running a post pattern up Girard Ave.

    Man, don’t you understand….we have to LEARN more about the culture. That’s why when I see someone on the street with marijuana, I go up to them, and say “I’m conducting a survey…..is that good marijuana? Where did you get it? Do you have anymore?”

    Yeah, except for that guy getting shot with Harrison’s gun stuff. “immoral and illegal activities” hahaha

    there goes moe sarcastically or otherwise assuming that black guys are tougher than white guys.
    since they like to gang up on people, they arent tougher.

  22. JohnnyH says: Jul 21, 2009 7:58 PM

    I wonder which are the greater odds, getting shot on two seperate occasions or winning the lottery.
    PS. Florio, I dont like the fact that we can’t rate the comments anymore.

    Depends on if you know Marvin Harrison.

    As a life long resident of Philadelphia, I need to point out that going by the stats, this shooting is more likely to be random than connected to a civil lawsuit.
