    Report: Harrison investigated in shooting outside bar

    ESPN.com news services






    Updated: May 2, 2008, 4:11 PM ET



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

      Wow.

      Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

          The gun shoots 50-caliber bullets?

            Hopefully its not true, because he seems like a stand up guy. If he's packin heat now, maybe that means he'll cross over the middle more.

                            Sound like that should have EPA estimated mileage on it...or something...
