Sorry I'm just getting this up on the blog now, folks.
Our Marvin Harrison lawsuit story (click here to read the full version) caught a lot of people by surprise today. Curious types -- namely reporters and radio personalities -- who long figured the case was closed or forgotten were abuzz over the new development. Admittedly, there's little to really get worked up about. Dwight Dixon's civil lawsuit against Harrison is months away from kicking off, and the District Attorney's Office is still mum about the state of criminal investigation into the shooting.
Rehashing the alleged facts of the case got a lot of people wondering just what the DA's Office is up to. The witness statements and ballistic evidence certainly seemed to suggest that Harrison was, in fact, the triggerman. But if Harrison is right, and someone else put a bullet in Dixon's hand, police say the NFL star would still face charges for allowing his gun to be used in a crime.
I'm sure there will be some more developments in the not-so-distant future. In the meantime, check out the Joe Kaczmarek slide show of investigators searching for -- and finding -- evidence on Thompson Street in North Philadelphia.
