DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Police say someone shot at a vehicle driven
by former Alabama football star Rolando McClain while he was in his
hometown of Decatur.

No one was hurt, and police said Friday they're unsure whether the shooter realized the vehicle belonged to McClain, who now plays for the NFL's Oakland Raiders.

Police say McClain called authorities about 7 p.m. Thursday to report that someone in a group on a street corner had shot at his Chevy Tahoe while he was driving by. Officers found a slug stuck in the rear door of the SUV, but the bullet didn't enter the passenger compartment. No one was arrested.

McClain grew up in Decatur and played linebacker on Alabama's national championship team before turning pro.
