    Brandon Merriweather Accused of Shooting Two Men

    A story surfaced on Deadspin.com early Thursday claiming that a Florida lawyer for two gunshot victims is accusing Patriots S Brandon Meriweather of shooting the men outside a house party on February 27.
    We're packing it in for the night, and must be clear: This story is totally unconfirmed. Whether or not it's true, it's probably going to be big news on Thursday. According to attorney John Morgan, Meriweather's friend beat up a woman, and things escalated into a brawl when the woman's brother arrived at the party. Meriweather is accused of pulling a gun, and shooting the brother and another man. The brother was "grazed," and the other man was hit in the head. No arrests have been made. We'll have more around 8:30AM ET.
    Just read it on rotoworld. Could be a distraction and possible story for months to come. Could possibly lead the patriots into other needs in the draft. Thoughts?

    Personally I doubt he did it. But who knows. This makes me think back to Marvin Harrison. What was the fonal rulling in his case?

    Brandon Merriweather Accused of Shooting Two Men

    Patriots Safety Brandon Meriweather Allegedly Shoots Two Men During Brawl

    Luke O'Brien New England Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather allegedly shot two men, one of them in the head, during a fight on February 27 outside a house party in Apopka, Florida, according to John Morgan, attorney for the victims.

    The trouble started at the Blue Jeans Lounge in Apokpa when a friend of Meriweather's allegedly beat up a woman, according to Morgan. The woman's brother arrived later with his own friend, and the conflagration shifted to a nearby party, where the brother soon got the better of Meriweather's friend in a fight. That's when Meriweather allegedly pulled out his gun and fired at the brother, grazing the man's face and hitting the other victim in the head, according to Morgan.

    "He's extremely lucky to be alive," Morgan said.

    Both victims attended Apopka High School with Meriweather, who later played football at the University of Miami. Detectives from the Orange County Sheriff's Office are investigating the case but have made no arrests, Morgan said. The public information officer at the sheriff's office did not return phone calls yesterday.

    Former Hurricane and current sports talk radio host Dan Sileo appears to be the first to mention the shooting. Until we hear back from the cops, however, these are all just allegations. But we'll keep you posted.

    Thanks to reader CT for pointing us in the right direction.

    First of all, you should put the word "allegedly" in the title. Just saying.

    But either way, stay classy Brandon!!! Have fun not playing football this year!!!

    Funny that a Jets fan is the 1st one to come rushing to post this up. Secondly nothing has been confirmed so putting "Brandon Meriweather shoots 2 people" is completely false and in some way you should state that right now they're just allegations in the title. You're completely misleading people.

    Rookie mistake? Rookie mistake?

    Shooting somebody in the face, and another one in the head is a lot more than a Rookie mistake. It is the mistake of a terrible human being.

    If he shot two people, one in the head, I don't think he'll be playing football ever. Jail seems like a lot more likely destination. Very sad, but that's why these f'n idiots don't need guns.

    (Assuming this is true)

    Seems fishy as of now. He should know better than pulling out a gun and shooting some one in the head. Until a full confirmed story comes out, i will save my words

    On one hand, this supposedly happened 10 days to go. Why would this just be coming out now instead when it first happened?

    On the other hand, if two victims were shot and are alive, I don't see them making up who shot them. Idk, doesn't make a lot of sense.
