 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -A 31-year-old man was shot during an altercation outside the home of Washington Wizards' guard DeShawn Stevenson, authorities said Monday.
Stevenson, 26, was asleep at his central Florida home when shots were fired about 4 a.m. Monday. He was not injured, according to a sheriff's report. Stevenson re-signed with the Wizards last month, reportedly getting $15 million in a four-year deal.
``We are aware of the incident. We have spoken with DeShawn and he is fine and was not harmed,'' Washington Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said. ``We will monitor the situation as this is a continuing investigation being conducted by the authorities in Orlando.''
According to an Orange County sheriff's report, Stevenson and friends met several women at a nightclub and invited them back to the NBA player's home in an Orlando suburb. Witnesses told deputies they were followed into the gated community by a Cadillac Escalade.
The driver of the Escalade argued with one of the women then reportedly opened fire with a handgun. Bullets shattered windows in Stevenson's Lexus SUV, and more shots hit a BMW and Stevenson's house.
Stevenson's companions told deputies they ran into the home and didn't return fire. The women from the nightclub fled the scene. Investigators found blood on one of the cars and bullet casings in Stevenson's driveway.
About a half-hour later, Curtis Ruff, 31, drove up to a local hospital in an Escalade seeking treatment for gunshot wounds to his legs, sheriff's spokesman Jim Solomons said. Ruff declined to cooperate, but Solomons said deputies believe he was shot at Stevenson's home.
No one involved in the altercation wanted to press charges. Solomons said the shooting remains under investigation.
