Gunshots were fired into the apartment of Virginia Tech cornerback Victor Harris early Sunday morning, Coach Frank Beamer said Wednesday. Harris was not injured and will play in Saturday's game against Miami.

"The incident that happened at my house, it was a random situation," Harris, an English major near the top of his class, said "I don't have any enemies or nothing like that. The shooting was very random. The police are looking into it right now. That's all I got to say about it."

William Shakespere thanks you.

As first reported by the Daily Press and World Weekly News, Blacksburg police responded to the 700 block of Appalachian (not kidding) Drive at 3:49 a.m. after residents reported hearing shots. The students also reported the sound of “barking dogs.” According to several ear-witnesses, “Lots and lots of dogs.”

According to one eye/ear-witness TAH won’t name (M. Tedeschi), a man in a red coat on a horse was seen in the area just prior to the shooting. “He had a maniacal grin on his face and he was shouting ‘Rock you like a Hurricane’ and waiving a gun,” said Tedeschi. “Come to think of it, he looked kind of familiar…”

“Oh, and those weren’t dogs, those were hounds,” he continued. “I’m from Fauquier County and I know a fox hound when I see one. I think this was a UVA prank designed to distract the Hokies from their game this weekend with Miami. What are they gonna do next? Attack practice on polo ponies?”
