    Just saw it. Really no details at all. The reporter said he doesn't know where MH is right now and in the context it was said I took it as good news.

    Apparently he got in a fist fight with a trouble making patron at a bar he owns in Philly. The guy fled, and Harrison gave chase.

    Some time later, gunfire erupted, this guy was grazed in the hand and some broken glass from a car they shot cut a girls face.

    The police went to question him at a car wash and they found a gun, registered to him, in a bucket at the car wash.

    Apparently the gun matched the one that fired the bullets at the crime scene

    I think he is under investigation for the shooting...no shooter identified....he's yet to be arrested....so he may or may not be the shooter. It happened outside a bar in his hometown.

    Oh OK, I haven't heard that part yet, but it sounds very likely

    As of now, the police are looking for witnesses. Harrison is screwed either way though because, even if he didn't do it, under Pennsylvania state law, if your gun is used in a crime, you get charged as well. There is no doubt it's his gun.

    Also, police have been contacted by the attorney of a man who is willing to testify against Harrison. Not good news for him.

    Wow..Marvin Harrison getting involved in a shooting is somewhat surprising. He's always been the quiet type or at least that is what the perception was. But on the other hand you always gotta watch out for the quiet types. Anyway, hope he's alright and hopefully we'll learn details soon because it certainly is a very strange incident.

    I think Marvins career was pretty much over anyway. Great career. Colts will move on.

    This is really bad for Harrison because he is facing charges no matter what comes of this.

    Wow, talk about a story I never thought I'd see. This guy has been the standard of professionalism. Where did this come from?

    Having evidence at the car wash you own after saying it was still at your home is not very smart. I would say his goose is cooked but with how these athletes get away with all kinds of things.

    Can't say this was very smart way for Marv to go about it.

    *edit: Man I'm slow. D-Rek and Spec both beat me to it.

    Would not expect this from a quiet guy like Marvin Harrison.

    From the "How does this affect the Texans?" department, it will be the Colts 4th game when they play the Texans. Will Marvin's suspension be that long? I'm thinking more like 2 games.
