Raiders middle linebacker Rolando McClain just barely avoided disaster Thursday. The first-round pick from Alabama was attacked in a drive-by shooting in his hometown of Decatur, Ala. McClain was one of handful of people who called the police.

From WHNT News:

Police initially responded to the area at 6:36 p.m. Thursday, after receiving a report someone had been shot. They could not find a victim.

At approximately 6:56 p.m. they received a call from McClain. He met with officers on 6th Avenue SW and told them while he was driving on 2nd Street SW, a group of people standing on the corner of 2nd Street SW and 8th Avenue started shooting at his vehicle. Officers inspected McClain's Chevrolet Tahoe, and saw where a bullet had struck the rear hatch.

Decatur is a pretty normal town. Sounds like he just got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Thank goodness he's fine.

Whoa!  It's one thing to be a Raiders - hater, but MAN! this is too much.  I am glad Rolando McClain wasn't hurt.  I don't know anything about Decatur, Ala. but apparently they have too many guns in that town.  I'd have thought that football - lovers like they are in the South would never take pot-shots at a PRO.  I wonder if it was some bored kids?

What is means is...

There are haters, and folks who will want to pull you off your percieved pedestal.   I live fairly close to Decatur, Alabama where he is from.    I imagine, he was riding around in a nice car, and some folks, who think, take, is the way to do things, saw him.   So, he took some fire.     


SIDENOTE:  I know his brother has had some drug related run-ins    So, maybe someone has beef with the brother.   

Also, 6:30, isnt all that late.....Sounds like Decatur needs to step up patrols.....   And as small as the DEC, as Decatur is known as, its known who did this....


Would not be surprised, if there is retaliation, whether or not McClain even wants it to happen.....

At least he is OK....senseless
