The Knicks Cleanthony Early was shot during a robbery in an Uber car after leaving a strip club on Wednesday morning. He was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
Cleanthony Early, a forward for the Knicks, was with his girlfriend and had left the CityScapes Gentleman’s Club in Maspeth in an Uber car when a group of as many as six men forced the vehicle to pull over at Maurice Avenue in Elmhurst, at about 4:30 a.m., the official said.
Mr. Early was robbed of two gold chains with medallions, cash and a cell phone before one of the men shot him in the right leg, police and the official said.
Early did not play during the Knicks win against the Pistons on Tuesday night but can bee seen in the following video celebrating after a dunk by Derrick Williams, who was robbed of $750k worth of jewelry earlier this month.
