(Newser) – Police have questioned Indianapolis Colts star Marvin Harrison about a shooting outside his Philadelphia bar this week, the Indianapolis Star reports. Details are vague so far: A man was shot in the hand, doctors treated a child hurt by shattered glass, and “a vehicle that was on the highway” was involved in the Tuesday incident, a police spokesman said.

ESPN reports a juicier story via a Philly radio station that says it spoke with an inside source: The man with the hand injury was shot with Harrison's gun following an argument in the bar. According to the source, the gun was found, recently fired, in a bucket at a car wash also owned by Harrison.
