Marvin Harrison, man in underwear shot at in Philadelphia


Former Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison’s again in the news regarding a shooting in Philadelphia.

According to David Gambacorta of the Philadelphia Daily News, the retired receiver was shot at early this morning while coming to the aid of a man in his underwear.

The report says that around 3:20 a.m., Harrison was driving when he was flagged down by a man wearing boxers who was fleeing an apartment, which two men had just broken into. The guy in his shorts asked Harrison to call 911, and Harrison let the man climb into the bed of his pickup.

That’s when the burglars ran outside, and shot twice at Harrison’s truck.

No one was injured, but one of the bullets hit Harrison’s tire, which went flat shortly thereafter. The victim said the burglars stole $500 from him, and apparently scared him enough to eschew pants.

Harrison has been accused of involvement in two Philadelphia shootings, but wasn’t charged either time. One of the men was later shot and killed near a bar Harrison owns.
