Former Alabama Football Star Injured in Shooting


A suspect is in custody after an NFL player was shot in his home Monday morning.

Tony Gildersleeve has been arrested for shooting former Cincinnati Bengal Antwan Odom in the leg.

Mobile County Sheriff's Office investigators say the former University of Alabama football star and the shooter were childhood friends.

Detectives were back on the scene Tuesday.

"We're pursuing an attempted murder charge against the suspect," said Sheriff Sam Cochran. "Anytime you shoot someone with a shotgun, the worst of intentions."

Odom is expected to make a full recovery.
