NFL still looking into Aqib Talib shooting
A fuller police report from the night that Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib was shot in the right leg has been made available, but it doesn’t offer much new insight into what led to Talib’s wound.
There were reports at the time that Talib told police that he didn’t know who shot him as well as reports that he accidentally shot himself, although the Dallas police said they were investigating it as an aggravated assault. The report, obtained by Ian Rapoport of NFL Media and Lindsay Jones of USA Today, confirms that Talib said he didn’t know who shot him and that an “unknown suspect” shot Talib.
The police report quotes a witness that was part of a group of people in a park and heard a single gunshot followed by seeing Talib lying on the ground. The report also says police found a gram of marijuana, but makes no mention of who it belonged to.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told Jones that the NFL is continuing an investigation into what happened and the Dallas police consider it an open investigation as well.
Talib is expected to make a full recovery in time for the regular season.
