the bullet did hit the femural (sp?) artery, as of last report, they got it repaired but he was still in critical . Apparently happened during a break in, a home invasion type. Reports are saying that it he has had security problems at the house before and recently.
No one deserves this, not an athlete, an engineer or a laborer. You should be safe in your own house.
My family's prayers are with Mr Taylor and his family.

They just did a update on ESPN, he just came out of a 6 hour surgery. Doctors are cautiously optimistic, he is conscious and is able to squeeze the doc's hand. :pray:
