Former NFL defender accused of shooting a woman told police he was hiding from the Russian mafia
A former NFL defense attorney was arrested Wednesday after allegedly shooting a woman in a Colorado shop.
Justin Bannan, 40, was accused of first degree assassination, first-degree assault with extreme indifference and first-degree assault with the intention of causing serious assault and first degree burglary after a woman shot dead outside a shop in Boulder and was wounded, police said in the NFL from 2002 to 2013 with the Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, St. Louis Rams and Detroit Lions.
The woman who was shot in the shoulder identified the shooter as a bannan and was taken to hospital, according to The Denver Channel, with no life-threatening injuries.
The police said the shots were "accidental" as Bannan and the woman were working in the same building but, according to Bou, were far away known as the Daily Camera.
According to reports, the woman told the police that she only knew Bannan because he was the owner of the building. Bannan is the owner of Black Lab Sports and the wife worked for a company that works in the same building.

The woman was in the building to unlock a therapy room when Bannan was already in the room and shot her in the shoulder, the newspaper said, citing a police sworn statement.
According to the police, Boulder Daily Camera found Bannan and carried a traveling bag with two loaded handguns, an additional magazine, and two rolled-up 20-dollar bills coated with a white powdery substance that was later considered positive for cocaine.
Bannan reportedly told the officer that he "did not intend to shoot her" and hid in the therapy room because he believed the Russian mafia was following him and following his cell phone. He said he had fired the gun on "accident".
Bannan also said he had hydrocephalus, which could lead to loss of thinking ability, according to FOX 31 Denver.
