Marvin Harrison Shooting Investigation Update: DA Press Conference Tuesday

<<Marvin Harrison will not face charges in connection with the April, 2008 shooting in Philly.>>>

Marvin Harrison Shooting Investigation Update: Press Conference Scheduled for TuesdayBreaking news out of Philadelphia tonight: Philly District Attorney Lynne Abraham has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday, January 6 to update the Marvin Harrison shooting investigation.

If you need your memory jogged quickly, this post from back in October provides most of the details, including the civil suit that was filed against Marvin Harrison.

Basically, a shooting took place in Philadelphia last April and the gun used in the shooting belonged to Marvin Harrison. The Colts WR is reported to have been involved in an altercation with the victim before the shooting; and while there are eyewitnesses, part of the reason for the long delay in the case is purported to be credibility of witnesses.

According to My Fox Philadelphia:

Fox 29 News has learned that Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham will reveal the results of the investigation during a news conference.

Police have said the gun used in the shooting near Harrison’s car wash in the Brewerytown section of the city belonged to him.

The press conference is scheduled to start at 11:00 am and can viewed live at

As we mentioned yesterday in our post regarding the questions facing the Indianapolis Colts heading into 2009, both the legal and contractual status of Marvin Harrison are a couple of the most pertinent questions. We also said what most Colts fans and even many media members had been unwilling or reluctant to say:

Do not forget that there are still pending charges against Marvin Harrison for a shooting that took place in his hometown of Philadelphia in March of 2008. Colts fans always get mad when I bring this up, and many think this is a closed case simply because the DA’s office in Philly has not yet pushed forward, but make no mistake: this case is not over.

I am keeping an eye on this case, because sources close to the investigation say it could come to a head sometime during the first few months of 2009. Just as the New York Giants face uncertainty with the legal status of Plaxico Burress, the Colts face similar questions with Marvin Harrison; and in the end, these issues could actually make the Colts’ decision regarding Harrison’s cap number quite simple.

We will see what the outcome of tomorrow’s press conference is before making any claims that we predicted anything here before it happened. As far as I can tell, if the DA thinks their witnesses will hold up in a trial, they will move forward. If they don’t — and it’s a big if — then Harrison could avoid a criminal trial.

Driving home from work tonight I was listening to the Dan Patrick show and he was discussing a story broken by ESPN. He proceeded to say something to the effect of, “we don’t break the news, we spray the news.” I laughed, thinking of how apt a description that is of most sports blogs, including this one. Almost exclusively on this site, we simply take the stories reported by other sources and add whatever two cents we may have.

The Marvin Harrison story, however, is one that caught my eye because of the glaring lack of activity since the initial flurry of information when the shooting occurred. I did a little digging, and wasn’t just blowing smoke when I continued to post about the Marvin Harrison shooting investigation when many others treated it like a dead issue (or, to be fair, like an issue that just hadn’t had much more information released publicly — which it was.)

I guess if Marvin Harrison faces charges tomorrow, we can gives ourselves a meaningless pat on the back for following up. Otherwise, the extra time spent will have simply been a waste of time for all intents and purposes.

One question I do have is this: doesn’t the timing seem somewhat suspect? A shooting occurs in Philly a few months before NFL training camp is set to kick off, and one of the primary suspects, Marvin Harrison, is one of the most successful athletes to come out of Philadelphia. News completely dies down (other than the civil case, which is completely unrelated to the criminal investigation) and then less than 48 hours after Marvin Harrison and the Colts’ season ends, a press conference is announced.

I suppose is perfectly logical that it could just be a coincidence, but the timing certainly worked out pretty well for Marvin Harrison, the Colts, and the NFL.

I’m just saying…

…and withholding any further judgment until tomorrow.

(Update: has a more detailed story about the Marvin Harrison case, written by Sal Paolantonio. According to Paolantonio, the police have been pressing the DA to bring the case to a close; however, the DA wanted reportedly wanted to wait until Harrison’s NFL season was over. Paolantonio also reports that witnesses have been “less than cooperative”, leading to uncertainty.)
