Former NFL player Gerald Perry injured in shooting

Gerald Perry, a former Broncos, Rams and Raiders defensive lineman, was injured in a shooting outside a Georgia car wash on Monday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Perry was sitting in a car when he was shot and that he’s in moderate condition in a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

DeKalb County Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said Perry was “an innocent party.”

The person who shot Perry apparently fled by car.

Perry played college football at Southern University and later played for the Denver Broncos from 1988 to 1990, for the Los Angeles Rams from 1991 to 1992 and for the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders from 1993 to 1995.

    I never thought car washes were so dangerous. First Marvin Harrison shoots that guy at his, now this…

    Shouldn’t there be at least a sentance worth of well-wishing to him and his family MDS?

    Actually, Perry was an offensive lineman. I hope he’ll be okay, and I’m glad to hear he was an innocent bystander. He had plenty of off-the-field trouble during his early NFL years.

    Raider nation strikes again.

    Maybe it was Hines Ward, he owns a “car boutique” in Atlanta.

    Get well soon Gerald. He was a revelation in 93, really responsible for keeping Hoss upright. That was a team w/ no running game that had the lead @Buffalo in the 4th Q. When he tore a tricep the next season, Raiders really struggled to find a competent LT for quite a while.

    What are you talking about, Ghost2thepost? Do you not remember the dominance of Pat Harlow?

    Please God forgive me – too bad he was not harmed worst. Was he buying crack at the car wash or raping a woman? The man should have been expelled indefinitely from the NFL as he raped at least 3 woman that we know of. Please be aware that I know this for sure! Yeah there really is something to Karma!

    Why have my comment not been printed? Is it that only negative things are printed about people?

    I have personal knowledge that he has a 13 year old son in LA that he owes the mother $400,000 in child support.He managed to hide for thirteen years and also threatened her life and had her followed.She is preparing to come out with her story soon and has no fear of Perry at this point.She was one of his victims.I dont think the ex-wife really knew who she was married to.Yeah there is something called Karma!
