Pats safety Meriweather cleared

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather has been ruled out as a suspect in Feb. 28 shootings in Apopka, Fla., a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department said.

The incident had generated headlines in New England in March.

Quentin Taylor and Nico Stanley were both injured in the shooting, and John Morgan, the lawyer for two men, told multiple media outlets at the time that the two men claim that Meriweather was the shooter.

Bob Hohler of the Boston Globe, who previously reported on the story in Apopka, follows up on the news in today's editions.
