Former Ravens QB Anthony Wright Shot Multiple Times, in Stable Condition


Former Ravens quarterback Anthony Wright was shot "multiple" times Monday, North Carolina police said in a press release.

Concord, N.C. police said Wright was taken to a local hospital for emergency surgery and is in stable condition.

Police have a warrant out for William "Willie" Moses Hooker Jr. on charges of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill. Police said the incident started with a verbal altercation between Wright and his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend, who was dropping off his daughter.

Wright, 43, spent four seasons with the Ravens from 2002-2005. He started 14 games during that time and posted a 7-7 record with 2,781 passing yards, 15 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.

He had a magical day on Nov. 23, 2003 when, starting for injured Kyle Boller, Wright threw for 319 yards and four touchdowns (all in the second half) in a comeback 44-41 overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks.

The Ravens won five of Wright's seven regular-season starts that season to march into the playoffs, but fell to the Tennessee Titans in the first round when Wright threw for 214 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
