Jefferson said Collier and former Jaguar Kenneth Pettway had been out clubbing in the San Marco area when they met two women. The two men followed the women to Riverside near St. Vincent’s Medical Center, police said, with the plan to drop the females’ vehicle off and continue socializing in one vehicle.
While waiting outside the Riverside apartment, Jefferson said, someone walked up to the Cadillac Escalade and fired off a number of shots striking Collier, who was behind the wheel. Pettway was not injured in the attack.
The local TV news is talking about it right now. They apparently ran a story last night about how Collier was always the biggest guy on his team: “He made a joke that even when he was on his peewee team he was 5’10”.”
