Indiana Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley will meet with team president Larry Bird and coach Jim O'Brien today after he and several companions were targeted in a shooting.

The shooting early yesterday morning outside a downtown Indianapolis hotel.

Police say the shooting followed a confrontation at a nightclub.

Pacers equipment manager Joey Qatato was slightly injured. Two cars owned by Tinsley, including a Rolls Royce, were struck by bullets.

Tinsley's brother, James, fired back at the attackers.

O'Brien says Tinsley made an error in judgment by being out so late.

It was Tinsley's third late-night episode in about 14 months, and the latest in a three-year string of incidents that have engulfed the franchise.
