Virginia Tech’s Victor Harris, better known to pigskin junkies as “Macho”, was involved in a shooting early Sunday morning. Well, at least his apartment was.
Nobody was injured during the hail of gunfire and police who responded at 3:49 a.m. are still trying to put together the pieces of what exactly happened. But we do know that Harris lives alone in the apartment, although three other students were in his apartment at the time, and we do know that if we were Harris, our nickname would be changed from “Macho” to “Titty Baby” following this incident.
An initial investigation by officers recovered evidence that seven shots were fired from a 9-millimeter handgun, and a single shotgun blast hit the face of the apartment building, the release said.
An attempt was made Monday to interview Harris after Tech’s football practice, but the athletic department didn’t make him available for interviews. Tech coach Frank Beamer didn’t have much information on the incident.
“We’re still gathering information on that,” Beamer said. “They were just in there minding their own business the way I heard it. I don’t know a whole lot about it myself other than what (players) told me. They were there and then all of a sudden stuff started.
Uh, duh, coach. Of course they were just sitting in there minding their business when the 9-milimeter and shotgun calling cards came knocking. You need to be worried about what they we’re doing before the bullets hit the walls. And if this isn’t some sort of retaliatory action, then Hokies fans are about as backwards as they come. Virginia Tech is coming off a smashing of Florida State; seems like if there would be a drive-by going down, it would at least coincide with a losing streak. Even then we’d say it’s probably a tad overboard. Hell, Bobby Bowden only gets “For Sale” signs stuck in his yard after the Seminoles stink it up.
