A number of NBA and NFL players were partying at a New York City nightclub when a gunman opened fire, killing an ex-con and injuring two others, according to the New York Daily News.

None of the NFL or NBA players were injured. Among them though were John Wall, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon and Kemba Walker, as well as five New York Giants -- Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Aaron Ross, Antrel Rolle and Chris Canty. The NBA players were still in New York, presumably after the players' meeting that happened Monday.
The gunman, clad in a white leather jacket, crashed the crowded party at the Juliet Supper Club on W. 21st St. by squeezing off five shots shortly before 2:30 a.m., police said.
[...]

In Tuesday’s bloodshed, the killer is thought to have fired the shots in a bid to get even after a woman was bumped on the dance floor — but her relationship to the gunman was not clear, the sources said.
Also in the club was actress Reese Witherspoon and her former husband Ryan Phillippe. Again, no players were involved or injured. They were just there when some psycho came storming in firing off shots. Which is extremely scary.

No way, no one gets convicted for something they didn't do..........

Thank you! Too bad these NFL players don't have a job and are out on the streets at 2:30 AM. Maybe they could pool together and rent an apartment that they could split the rent for and have a place to hang out since they have nothing to get up for in the morning. This darn economy, hope it picks up for these poor unemployed fellows. Loved your simple, to the point, comment! I do see "Now hiring" signs in the windows of fast food places, convenient stores and chain department stores, then they might get lucky as seasonal help. :))

Maybe they should think about adding some medal detectors in these clubs.

Its funny how Royce Young adresses the man that was killed" ex-con" like if it was notting cause it was a ex-con. The guy must have love once and could have been convicted for something small or something he didn't do.

This just in, a man had broken into the cbs station and shot and killed a writer, but everything was alright as dan marino, bill cower, sharpe and boomer were safe. This could have been scary.

Black NBA and NFL players and nightclubs just do not mix..they are like oil and water.

 

Again the old saying holds true....Nothing good happens after 2AM

The "shooting" was unfortunately NOT at the basketball court at the local Boys and Girls "Club."

I'm sure Plaxico was behind the scenes with his own gat getting ready to pop off a cap if one of his homies had been shot.  Of course, he wouldn't for Eli since he didn't visit him in prison.
