One person was injured in the shooting outside a downtown Indianapolis hotel, which involved an assault rifle, the Tribune reported. Tinsley was unharmed in the incident, but did not practice with the team Sunday.
Tinsely was scheduled to meet Monday with Pacers owner Larry Bird and coach Jim O’Brien about the incident.
