Redskins Star Sean Taylor Shot in Miami
Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor was shot by intruders in his home early today in Palmetto Bay, Florida. He is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami after being shot in the groin.
[Taylor's lawyer Richard Sharpstein] said Taylor, 24, emerged from surgery about 12:30 p.m. but had lost a lot of blood and remained unconscious, his brain at risk of injury from the blood loss. He was in intensive care and doctors have allowed his family to see him. Sharpstein said a doctor informed the family around 6 p.m. Monday that Taylor had squeezed a nurse's hand, giving the family hope that he was responding to treatment.
The intruders fled the scene and did not steal anything. Taylor's girlfriend and child were also in the bedroom at the time of the shooting. The baby slept through the whole thing.
Someone broke into Taylor's home last week when nobody was home, rifled through several things, and left a kitchen knife on a bed in the house.
