Aqib Talib was taken to a Dallas hospital with a gunshot wound early Sunday morning, and initial reports had him as one of three victims at a nightclub shooting. However, Talib has maintained that he was at a park when he got shot in the thigh and was too drunk to know who shot him, but Dallas PD are investigating whether or not he was shot at V Live nightclub, as the Dallas Morning News first reported.

TMZ reported earlier today that Talib was at V Live and posted a video allegedly showing an argument outside the club and four shots going off.


Talib missed the Broncos’ visit to the White House this afternoon. KUSA reported today that Talib is expected to recover fully, but miss the rest of offseason practices. KUSA also reports that Talib has been telling his inner circle that he shot himself on accident:

Talib has told people close to him he accidentally shot himself, but police are still investigating the matter. WFAA reported Talib told police he was hanging out at a park with friends when he was shot at about 3:40 a.m.
