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:

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.
