Former Grizzlies point guard critically wounded

Jul 21, 2009 - 8:18 PM MEMPHIS, Tenn.(AP) -- Former Memphis Grizzlies and University of Memphis point guard Antonio Burks remains in critical condition a day after being shot during a robbery.

A spokeswoman for Regional Medical Center in Memphis said Tuesday morning there was no change in the medical condition of Burks, who underwent surgery Monday night after he was shot in the lower torso.

Police said the 29-year-old was returned to the operating room about 10 p.m. Monday because of internal bleeding.

A police news release said Burks and four other men were in the backyard of a Memphis house when they were robbed by three men. They shot Burks and a 44-year-old man, whose identity was not released. Police said the second victim also was in critical condition.
