The Updated Story on Marvin Harrison

Details remain scant out of Philadelphia following a shooting outside of Playmakers, Marvin Harrison's establishment in North Philadelphia. The Indianapolis wide receiver has been questioned by police as part of the investigation, but he is not considered a suspect at this time.

Lieutenant Frank Vanore said the investigation of Tuesday's shooting was continuing. Harrison has not been arrested or charged.

"He was interviewed," Vanore said yesterday. "Why he was interviewed, that is all part of the investigation. No one is a suspect."


Harrison won't be commenting any time soon, but his agent Tom Condon has issued stated that previous reports of Harrison's involvement in the shooting were false.

"I've spoken with Marvin and I've spoken with his attorney, and they say the reports are erroneous," Condon told ESPN. "Marvin was not involved in any shooting, and he is not the subject of this investigation."

I'm not saying that agents, lawyers, and men caught up in police investigations are always to be trusted, but in this case it seems warranted.

This morning David Gambacorta and Ted Silary reported on that Harrison conceded to police that he had been engaged in a fight and that he was the owner of the FN5.7 firearm in question.
