Report: Philly Police Will Test Gun Owned By Marvin Harrison

Former Indianapolis Colts receiver Marvin Harrison has been under investigation by police for a 2008 shooting in Philadelphia.  Shaun Assael of ESPN The Magazine is reporting that the Philadelphia Police Department will test a gun owned by Harrison that was found in his car during a traffic stop Wednesday.

The 37-year-old former Pro Bowl receiver was driving the wrong way down the one-way street in a Cadillac Escalade when the patrolman stopped him along with the driver of a second car that was trailing him, the sources said.

According to the law enforcement sources, the patrolman saw Harrison place something that appeared to be a weapon in the seat console of his car. When the officer asked him to step out of the vehicle, Harrison produced a car registration and a permit to carry a weapon, both of which were in order. When he was asked whether he had a weapon, however, he answered no, the sources said.

At that point, the sources added, the officer said that he had probable cause to search the vehicle and found a weapon in the seat console.

The gun, Assael writes, will be tested against shell casings found on the scene of the 2008 shooting.
