JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say Jacksonville Jaguars player Richard Collier has been shot and is facing life-threatening injuries.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says Collier and former Jags player Kenneth Pettway were outside an apartment waiting for some women they met at a club when a gunman shot into their car early Tuesday.
Sheriff's spokesman Ken Jefferson says Collier was shot several times but it's not clear where he was injured. He was transported to a local hospital.
The reason behind the attack is also unclear. The sheriff's office continues to investigate.
