Virginia Beach police say they know who did the shooting following a Michael Vick birthday celebration, but the shooter will not be charged “at this time” because the victim has not cooperated with investigators, according to the Associated Press.
In a statement released yesterday, police said witnesses have also been reluctant to help in the investigation of the shooting outside a Virginia Beach nightclub. The statement says because the shooter will not be charged, his identity will not be released.
The victim has not be identified by the police, but Vick’s attorney Larry Woodward says it was Quanis Phillips — a co-defendant in Vick’s dogfighting case.
Vick, the Eagles’ backup quarterback, said he left the nightclub before the shooting.
