Eagles quarterback Michael Vick issued a statement through his lawyer Billy Martin, in which he said he had "nothing to do" with the shooting incident at his 30th birthday party and that he has been "completely truthful and fully cooperative from the very beginning" with law enforcement and NFL investigators.

Here is the text of the statement:

On June 25, 2010 I attended a birthday party held in my honor at The Guadalajara’s Restaurant in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

After I left the event, I learned that a man was shot outside the restaurant.

I want to assure everyone that I had nothing to do with that incident. I left the restaurant prior to it occurring and did not witness what happened.

Following the incident, I reported it to the Philadelphia Eagles and to representatives of Commissioner Roger Goodell of the NFL. In addition, I cooperated with and answered any and all questions from Law Enforcement officials investigating this matter. My statements, from the beginning, explained that I was not there at the time of the shooting and had no knowledge of the events surrounding it. I have been completely truthful and fully cooperative from the very beginning and will continue to cooperate with Law Enforcement and the NFL as this investigation continues.
