INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley and several companions were targeted in a shooting Sunday morning that wounded one person outside a downtown hotel.
Tinsley was not injured.
Joey Qatato, identified as the team's equipment manager on the Pacers' Web site, was struck in both elbows as he sat with Tinsley in the player's Rolls Royce. The 48-year-old Qatato was taken to Methodist Hospital, where he was treated and released.
Police said the shooting involved an assault rifle and followed a confrontation when Tinsley and his companions were leaving the "Cloud 9" club.
I think it's time to ship Tinsley the hell out of town, for everyone's own safety.
"Wocka Wocka...who wants to hear a funny-ass joke?"
I tell you what man, Roberson KILLED you guys last night. Sure he might have hit some big 3's to pull you close, but he killed you the whole night before that. I know he's a converted shooting guard, but he takes way too many bad shots.
