Carl Landry
Team spokesman Nelson Luis said Landry, 25, suffered a flesh wound during a random shooting in the 3000 of Leeland Street in downtown Houston at about 1:30 a.m.Houston police said two men in a vehicle behind Landry's opened fire. Landry exited his vehicle to see what was happening and was wounded in the lower leg.Team officials said Landry also suffered a dislocated finger on his left hand. He was treated at and released from Memorial Hermann Hospital.Police said the shooters got away.

One of Paul's best friends got a text message from his brother early this morning saying there was someone banging on his door and wanting to come in. What did he do? Called 911 TWICE. Got his shotgun and told the guy to hide in the bushes if he was scared. Told him the Police had been called, and unless he wanted to get shot again, he needed to move away from the door. He fell asleep waiting for the police to show (they never did).

So this morning he woke up and went to work. There was a nasty mess on his front porch too. When he got to work he saw the above article. Same guy? We think so. The shooting happened on the same block as his condo. Crazy, huh?
