RICHMOND, Va. – Police say Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick has not been ruled out as suspect or person of interest in a shooting investigation in Virginia Beach.
Police spokesman Adam Bernstein says police did not look at Vick or anyone else as a possible suspect immediately after the shooting early Friday because detectives had not begun their investigation.
Bernstein says police will not discuss specifics of the investigation and says no one has been named as a suspect or arrested in the case.
Police have not identified the shooting victim, but Vick’s attorney, Larry Woodward, says it was Quanis Phillips, a co-defendant in the dogfighting case that sent Vick to federal prison.
Vick was interviewed by police last Monday.
