On man was killed and a National Football League running back was wounded in a drive-by shooting in Orlando, Fla., that left a third man hurt.
The New York Jets Chris Johnson was shot in the shoulder while stopped at a traffic light, police said.
According to police, a vehicle pulled up alongside the Jeep Johnson was traveling in and opened fire.
Johnson and fellow passenger Reggie Johnson, also shot in the shoulder, were listed in stable condition. The Jeep’s driver, Dreekius Oricko Johnson, was killed.
