Chargers RB from Philly wounded in shooting

CHELTENHAM, Pa. (AP) - A San Diego Chargers running back who
lives in Philadelphia is hospitalized after being shot in his car
at a suburban intersection.
A condition report wasn't immediately available Friday morning
for 23-year-old Curtis Brinkley. An uncle, Gregory Brinkley, tells
WPVI-TV that Curtis has been able to talk with relatives on the
phone.
Police say the shooting occurred about midnight as Brinkley was
driving in Cheltenham in Montgomery County, just north of
Philadelphia. Police say they are looking for a gunman who ran to a
car and fled, but don't know a motive for the shooting.
Brinkley was a standout football player at Philadelphia's West
Catholic High School and a running back at Syracuse University. He
was signed by San Diego as a free agent after the 2009 National
Football League draft.
