Cops: Surveillance tape shows Dixon shooting

Surveillance images released today by police show the man who shot and critically wounded Dwight Dixon in Fairmount earlier this week.

The gunman, however, is shown running with his head lowered, in a dark jacket in jeans. He has not been identified.

Dixon, 33, who last year claimed he had been shot by NFL star Marvin Harrison, was shot seven times on Girard Avenue near 28th Street shortly before 11 a.m. on Tuesday. The shooting occurred two blocks away from Playmakers, a club Harrison owns.

Investigators have not yet been able to interview Dixon, who is sedated and in stable condition at Hahnemann University Hospital. Sources close to the investigation said Dixon told an officer at the scene of the shooting that the man who shot him had been hired by someone else.

The sources said they have no evidence to suggest Harrison is involved in this incident. In January, the District Attorney's Office declined to press charges against the former Indianapolis Colts receiver because witnesses told prosecutors nine different versions of what transpired in North Philadelphia on April 29, 2008, the night Dixon and another man, Robert Nixon, claimed they were shot by Harrison.
