Kings F Chris Webber was in a group of people fired upon in a drive-by shooting at 2:30 a.m. yesterday in Los Angeles.
No one was hurt, according to police.
Webber was standing in a crowd near a hamburger stand when a car with four people inside drove by, and someone fired rounds from a 9mm weapon, officer Jason Ficken said.
"From what we understand, Chris Webber with the Sacramento Kings was in the area," Ficken said. "He wasn't the intended target. He was among the group."
Most of the crowd had left by the time police arrived, but Webber was still at the scene, Ficken said.
Police were still looking for the suspects, and no arrests had been made.
