CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – Officials say former NBA player Carl Herrera has been shot and wounded during an apparent robbery attempt in Venezuela.
The country's prosecutor's office says the shooting occurred Saturday in a restaurant on Margarita Island.
The Venezuelan newspaper El Universal says he is in stable condition at a hospital.
Herrera was a power forward during the 1990s for Houston, San Antonio, Vancouver and Denver, scoring more than 2,400 points over a nine-year career. Now 48, he's coaching a team in the Venezuelan league.
The Trinidad-born player attended the University of Houston.
