TROY, Mich. (AP) -Detroit Pistons guard Flip Murray says gunshots were fired into his home after two people in masks approached a female friend who was returning with him from a nightclub. Police said no one was injured.
There are no suspects and the intent of the masked males was not clear, police said Wednesday.
Murray, who signed with the Pistons last July, told Troy police in suburban Detroit he was not aware of being followed.
He said he had just arrived home from the club early Monday and had left the door open for the 25-year-old woman, who drove separately. The woman told police she was approached from behind by a masked male and ordered to be quiet. The woman screamed and fled into the house, Lt. Gerry Scherlinck said.
Murray emerged to find someone standing on the front porch, pointing a gun toward him and ordering him to approach the door, Scherlinck said. A second man was spotted standing behind the first.
``As soon as he gets there he literally slams the door in his face and locks it and runs into the interior of the house,'' Scherlinck said.
Murray told police he then heard gunshots fired, and police later determined two shots were fired through the front door, with a third piercing a window next to the door. Both masked males, whose ages were unknown, fled.
Murray told police he saw a tan- or light-colored sedan driving by slowly as he pulled into his driveway. The car then pulled into the parking lot of a nearby landscaping business, and a K-9 dog later led investigators to the same lot, Scherlinck said.
Joe Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations, did not immediately respond to an e-mail Wednesday. Pistons spokesman Kevin Grigg said the team was aware of the situation, adding ``everything has been turned over to the proper authorities.''
