Carl Landry Shot!

A story from the Houston Chronicle reports that Carl Landry was shot early this morning. Here is the Chronicles story on the matter. Rockets forward Carl Landry suffered a gunshot wound to his lower leg early this morning about an hour after the team arrived home from New Orleans.
The shooting took place near Landry’s Fort Bend County home. He was treated for a flesh wound at Memorial Hermann Hospital and released. Landry is expected to be out of the lineup for one to two weeks.
Following the Rockets’ 95-84 win over the Hornets, the team charter flight landed at Hobby Airport just past midnight.
After driving home, Landry, 25, went back out to pick up a late meal at a fast food restaurant not far from his house. His car was first side-swiped by a passing car and then the occupants of the vehicle slowed down and fired two shots, the second of which struck him in the leg, according to team officials.
Landry, in his second professional season with the Rockets, had played 23 minutes, totaling 12 points and six rebounds, and played a key role in the Rockets’ win at New Orleans. He is averaging 9.3 points and 5 rebounds this season.
