Michael Vick was not involved or present when a shooting took place outside a nightclub where he had celebrated his birthday, his lawyer said Friday.
Larry Woodward, one of the Eagles' quarterback's attorneys in his federal dogfighting case, said Vick wasn't at the club when the shooting took place just after 2 a.m. Friday outside the club Guadalajara at Town Center shopping center in Virginia Beach, Va.
The victim was taken to a hospital, but his injuries were not life-threatening, Virginia Beach Police spokesman Adam Bernstein said. Several news outlets identified him as Quanis Phillips, one of the co-defendants in the federal dogfighting case that landed Vick an 18-month federal prison sentence.
