Two guys that went to high school with Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather are alleging he shot them in the face and head on February 27, according to the guys’ lawyer. However, local police in Florida say Meriweather is not listed as a victim, suspect or witness” in connection with any shooting. The lawyer has also backpedaled some, saying “I have a lot of doubt about … what these fellas told me.”

Meriweather has not yet commented on the allegations, while the Patriots issued a minimalist statement: “We are aware of the reported allegation, but do not have any additional information.”

The story the lawyer told Deadspin goes like this: Meriweather’s friend beat up a woman. Later that night, the woman’s brother beat up Meriweather’s friend. Meriweather then pulled out a gun, shot at the brother, grazing his face and hitting the brother’s friend in the head.

Meriweather, 27, has played four pro seasons for the Patriots, and has made the Pro Bowl the last two seasons. While at the University of Miami, he shot at some people who had shot one of his teammates in the buttocks. Meriweather had a permit for his gun and was determined to have acted in self-defense in that incident.
