Antwan Odom shot in home invasion
Tony Gildersleeve turned himself in to authorities Monday afternoon and was charged with attempted murder. Gildersleeve, 28, and the 29-year-old Odom have been friends since the third grade, authorities said, according to media reports.
Police said Gildersleeve fired two shots with a shotgun after entering Odom's home through an unlocked door around 4:30 a.m. ET. One shot hit the wall and the other hit Odom's thigh.
Odom and Gildersleeve wrestled over the shotgun before Gildersleeve fled the home, authorities said, according to media reports.
Deputies believe the shooting was over a woman, who until recently was the girlfriend of Gildersleeve. The woman was in the house during the incident but was unharmed, according to authorities.
Odom suffered a minor flesh wound in his thigh, Donnie Atkinson, a public relations official who has worked with Odom in the past.
Atkinson told the Mobile Press-Register that six pellets are still in Odom's thigh and are expected "to work their way out."
Odom was released from the hospital Monday after being treated.
Odom is a free agent currently rehabbing a wrist injury suffered last season. He was released by the Bengals last month.
