To Rambo5254 -- I live in Jacksonville and the story that has been reported is that he and another Jaguar player were at a club, left with 2 women to follow them home so the women could drop their car off, and that's where he was shot..so yes, unfortunately it was over a girl.

At this time, they have no suspects. The Jaguars are offering a $25,000 reward.

It really is a shame. He's a hard working guy who has had to fight for everything he's ever gotten -- and now something (football) that is SO very important to him..is over.

Oh, sure, I bet he was shot with a legally owned hand gun by an otherwise law-abiding contributing member of society.

I'll bet you it was birdwatching. There are several night birds in Northern Florida that have lovely, warbling songs and then, of course, as it gets closer to dawn there are early songbirds that are awake and trilling before dawn and I'm sure that must have been what it was all about. He was up and out very early to hear and see the Florida songbirds, bless his nature loving heart.

bad drug deal.no becuase this makes enough to pay for his drugs,a hit dont make me laugh,hitman only need one shot and wouldnt be alive still,a robbery maybe but then wouldnt they have stolen somthing.only a few ways someone could be angry enough to shoot you 14 times.the triangle is one of them.

Hate to burst your bubble, but just because he left the club with a friend and 2 women to drop off the women's car still doesn't mean it was over a woman. I'm not saying it "wasn't" over a woman, but at this point it's all speculation.

My prayers go out to he & his family.

And to continue to speculate is our purpose and function, I agree that this was a targeted attack, mostly at this poor guys jewels that kind of anger and hatred has to come from some type of lust scenario gone wrong what will passenger exjag player reveal, or is he just glad to still be alive?

I am sure the cops have checked out all aquaintances of the girls, so something tells me it was not a boyfriend. Maybe just a sick individual that gets off on shooting people. They are everywhere. Could have been a gang member, a radical muslim, or just some guy he woke up waiting in the car with loud rap playing. Do you know how many times I wanted to shoot my neighbors. Some people have nothing to live for and do not care who they hurt. I really do not think this guy was a bad person. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. It happens everyday.
neighbors....run !!!

You may not like rap music, but just because a club plays rap music doesn't mean that someone is going to get shot. I have been out at 2 something in the morning plenty of times at clubs that play rap music and nothing has ever happened. I do agree that the people you surround yourself with plays a major role.

How about these two girls set these football players up to get robbed. It would not be ther first time. It is sad but apparently if you have any fame and appear to have any money you cannot meet people at random, it is just not safe. And Look at Sean Taylor in Miami, it was his own distant family that killed him in his own home. Black on black crime! Wake up Black America, take responsibility for the black thugs that are killing all your prosperous black citizens.

Really? So what music is telling white kids to beat homeless people, stab their friends in middle school bathrooms and kill their mothers for money to buy their girlfriends breast implants? Newsflash most of us were born here. The only raft I have ever been was at the water park.

This poor guy. I feel sorry for him. It's hard enough for anyone to be paralyzed, but for a guy that was athletic this will be very tough for him.
