An unknown gunman shot former NFL Cornerback R.W. McQuarters in the back on Saturday, April 30, 2011. The retired athlete was leaving a friend’s house in Tulsa, Oklahoma when the incident occurred.
The former NFL player told police that he noticed a man wearing a ski mask shortly before the shooting. According to Fox Sports, McQuarters drove himself to the hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.
Fortunately for R.W. McQuarters, his injuries were not life-threatening. The bad news is that the police do not have a suspect in the case.
Fans are showing their support for McQuarters, but they are also expressing concern that there is actually more to the story than initially reported.
Could the shooting have been personal, or was it a botched attempt at a robbery? Hopefully, the police in Tulsa will be able to find out more details and arrest the culprit.
R.W. McQuarters’s career in the NFL spanned 10 years. The 34-year-old played for the San Francisco 49ers, the Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions, and the New York Giants.
