Ray Allen is speaking out about the recent early morning break-in that endangered his life and the lives of his family.


“We want to correct the erroneous information being reported about the crime committed in our home this week,” writes the NBA star in a statement. “On Thursday morning at 2:30 a.m., my wife, Shannon, was awakened by loud voices in our bedroom where she had been sleeping with our four young children. She heard male voices loudly discussing our personal property and sat up in a state of alarm to find at least five people inside our bedroom with large flashlights. She was immediately fearful for the safety of her own life, but more importantly the lives of our young children.”

Allen was sure to criticize media outlets that made light of the situation by telling them, “The suggestion that anyone can unlawfully enter into someone’s locked home and then into an occupied bedroom in the middle of the night without consequences is unsettling.”
