Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate Marvin Harrison was shot at by two burglars in the Philadelphia area on June 14. Harrison was unscathed in the incident, although the bullet flattened one of his vehicle's tires.

Former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison was reportedly shot at by burglars in Philadelphia. 

According to David Gambacorta of The Philadelphia Daily News, Harrison managed to escape the incident unscathed, although one of his vehicle's tires was flatted by the bullet from one of the perpetrators: 

"Former NFL star Marvin Harrison spent part of the morning dodging bullets. 

"The retired Indianapolis Colts wide receiver was steering his Ford F-350 pickup truck through Wynnefield Heights at about 3:20 a.m. when he was flagged down by a 38-year-old man who had just bolted out of an apartment on Ford Road near Monument Road, police sources told The Daily News. 

"The panicked man, clad in boxers, was fleeing two intruders who had just broken into his apartment. 

"He begged Harrison, 41, to call 9-1-1-. Harrison allowed him to climb into the bed of the pickup. 

"The burglars darted outside, the sources said, and one pulled out a gun and fired twice in the direction of the truck. 

"Neither Harrison nor the fleeing apartment dweller was wounded, but a bullet apparently tore into one of Harrison's tires, which went flat a short while later, the sources said. 

"The assailants fled in a dark-colored sedan. 

"According to police reports obtained by The Daily News, one was described as (a) thin, 5-foot-5 black man who wore gloves, dark clothing and a mask. The other was described as a stocky 6-foot-1 black man who wore all dark clothing and a mask. 

"Harrison was interviewed by investigators from Southwest Detectives, and pledged to hand over the truck tire that was struck by the bullet. 

"The victim told police that the burglars stole about $500 in cash from his apartment. 

"Harrison, who still lives in Philadelphia, could not be reached for comment." 

Gambacorta also stresses Harrison has had a controversial off-field history since his retirement. 

Philadelphia native Dwight Dixon says Harrison shot him in the hand after an argument ensued between the two on April 29, 2008. The incident reportedly took palce near Harrison's garage at 25th and Thompson Street. 

Another person by the name of Robert Nixon insisted he was wounded in his back after Harrison fired an errant shot. Ballistics test run by the authorities later on proved the shots indeed game from Harrison's gun, per The Philadelphia Daily News report. 

Gambacorta also notes no charges were filed due to several contradicting stories told by all three parties. He also adds "Dixon and Nixon filed civil lawsuits against Harrison."

A little over a year later, Dixon was shot multiple times on Girard Avenune near 28th Street in Philadelphia. Before he died two months later, he told police he believed Harrison was responsible. The case has not been solved, according to The Philadelphia Daily News update. 

Harrison was involved in a third incident four years ago when authorities caught him going the wrong way along a one-way street in North Philadelphia. They confiscated a 9mm handgun he had with him. No criminal charges were filed, per Gambacorta. 

Four months ago, both Harrison and former Colts head coach Tony Dungy were finalists for the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, but did not make the final cut, according to ESPN's Mike Wells: 

"Harrison, who was in his first year of eligibility, made the cut from 15 modern-era finalists to 10, but did not make the cut to the five players to be voted on for the class. dungy didn't make the cut to the five players to be voted on for the class. Dungy didn't  make the cut from 15 to 10 in the selection meeting. 

"Reed's selection over Harrison is confusing. Reed is headed to the Hall of Fame after being an eight-time finalist. 

"The numbers prove that Harrison was a better receiver. There's no othe way to look at it. 

"Harrison has at least 1,000 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns in eight straight seasons. Reed had at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in a season only once in his career. He topped 1,000 receiving yards in a season only four times in his 16-year career. 

"Harrison was an eight-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro selection. Reed played in seven Pro Bowls. 

 

"Harrison's and Dungy's time will come." 

Harrison played in the NFL from 1996-2009 -- all with the Colts. He was originally selected by Indianapolis 19th overall in the 1996 NFL Draft out of Syracuse University. He wound up amassing 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns on 1,102 receptions during his pro football career, per ESPN stats
