Two Shot Near Ex-NFL Player's Body Shop

Just after 5:00 pm on April 23, 2014, officers from the 22nd District found two men shot near Chuckie's Garage, a body shop in Brewerytown, PA, police spokeswoman Officer Christine O'Brien said.

The body shop itself, owned by former Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison, appears to be incidental to the shooting, police said. However, it was the scene of another much-publicized shooting in 2008.

One victim, 23, was shot once in the buttocks. The other, a 19-year-old, was hit twice in his thigh and abdomen. Both were taken to Hahnemann University Hospital, O'Brien said.

The 23-year-old is listed in stable condition, but his friend was in critical condition, awaiting surgery, police said.

Chief inspector Scott Small said the victims told investigators that their attackers fled the scene in a black Cadillac sedan with New York license plates.

A bag of a "weed-like substance" was found at the scene of the shooting, Small said, making a drug-sale-gone-bad a potential motive for the attack.
