With the current title it looks like Carl Landry was shot because he's gangrelated. From what I hear it's a stray bullet.

It was a rumour, it's not clear yet about how long he will be gone. It should be mentioned that he was very lucky, according to some sources it was multipleshot's the person fired towards Carl but only one hit him, it could have ended VERY bad.

Damn, couldn't happen to a better guy. At least he'll be able to watch the Boilers continue the resurrection of the program.

Carl Landry did the same thing Plaxico Burress did... He was just a better liar than Plaxico.

If you accidently shoot yourself in the leg, this is the story to use.

That was my first thought too, Carl seems to be a very humble and down-to-earth guy and I've had the opportunity to meet him once when I was in Houston with basketballteam, we went to some Rocket-event and Carl seemed to be a very nice guy. At least I'm glad he's ok and he sure thing he had some luck that the other bullets missed him, this could have gone a hell alot worse then it did.
