The Houston Chronicle reports: Houston Rockets forward Carl Landry suffered a gunshot wound to his lower leg early this morning in a possible drive-by shooting or failed robbery near downtown, police said. Landry, 25, was released after treatment at Memorial Hermann Hospital. A team spokesman said he suffered a flesh wound and is expected to be out of the lineup for one to two weeks. The incident happened in the 3100 block of Leeland, a short distance southeast of downtown, about 4:20 a.m., Houston police said in a preliminary report.

InsideHoops.com says: The report continues to say that, according to police, a car bumped Landry, and when he got out to see if his own car was damaged, shots were fired from the other vehicle at him. It’s great that he’s OK. And it’s a shame that we have to live on the same planet as the type of people who go around harming other people like this.
