Twenty-six year old Richard Collier’s bad luck streak climaxed in the early morning hours on Tuesday when he was shot several times by an unknown gunman, while he and friend, Kenneth Pettway, were waiting in a car outside an apartment in the 2300 block of Riverside Avenue.
Collier, the 6-foot-7, 350 pound lineman for the Jacksonville Jaguars had been having a streak of bad luck lately. It started when he was beat out by Khalif Barnes for the starting job at left tackle during training camp. Then, earlier this year, Collier was sentenced to 6 months of probation after pleading no contest to a drunken driving charge which was filed in November of last year. Now, Collier is barely clinging to life at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center after a gunman shot several rounds into the vehicle occupied by him and Pettway. No suspects are currently in custody but cash rewards are being offered for any information leading to the apprehension of the assailant.
