The Dallas Police Dept has concluded its investigation into the June shooting incident involving Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib.
The shooting occurred in the early hours of June 5 in Dallas. The following day, during the Broncos White House visit, Talib reportedly told people close to him he’d accidentally shot himself.
He’d initially told investigators he was too drunk to remember what happened that night but he had wounds “consistent with an accidental shooting” — in the rear of his upper right leg and rear of his right calf.
It was widely reported following the incident, that Talib was at a strip club in Dallas– where two other people had been shot. Talib and other witnesses later told police he was shot by someone else, while standing in a nearby park in northeast Dallas.
The injuries sidelined the NFL player until mid-August.
At around that same time, 9News reported that the NFL would not take over the ongoing investigation of Dallas PD.
An NFL spokesman said Tuesday that the case “remains under review” and Talib’s fate now rests with the league’s disciplinary committee. It doesn’t appear he’ll be criminally charged in the case.
However, the league has said it does not need a conviction to find a player in violation of its personal conduct policy.
