Free-agent RB Chris Johnson was shot this morning in Orlando, FL in what authorities are calling a drive-by shooting.

The shooting occurred around 2 AM when Chris Johnson was driving with two friends, Reggie Johnson and Dreekins Oriko Johnson.

When police arrived they found Chris and Reggie sitting on the sidewalk with apparent gunshot wounds. Chris was shot in the shoulder while Reggie was shot in the shoulder, hand and leg. Both victims are expected to survive and are in a local area hospital, listed in stable condition.

Unfortunately, the driver of the vehicle, Dreekins Oriko Johnson, was pronounced dead after police arrived to find him still sitting in the driver’s seat of the Jeep.

At this time, Orlando police have not provided any information about possible suspects in the case. They have stated that the investigation is ongoing and that there were no further details that were going to be released to the public at this time.

Chris Johnson, 29, is a free agent after the Jets waived his option for the coming season. Last year, he had a career-low season with only 663 yards rushing and one touchdown as compared to his previous 6 years with at least 1,000 rushing yards.
