Taloney tweets that Odom's injuries are not life threatening and that deputies are currently "looking for the shooter".

The Bengals released Odom on July 29 after injuries (and a four-game suspension) forced the defensive end to miss 26 of 48 games during his three-year career with the Bengals.

Odom, with a $6.3 million cap number in 2011, was also due $9.8 million in base salary over the final two seasons of his contract, freeing up $2.9 million of cap space for this season.
