Police release report on Aqib Talib shooting incident

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A Dallas police report, which was released Friday and includes a narrative of last month's shooting of Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib, didn't shed much light on the incident.

Talib was shot once in his right leg in the early-morning hours of June 5, the report shows. Talib informed police he didn't know who shot him, and a witness said he had been with Talib in a large group of people in a park when he heard one gunshot. The witness said he then found Talib on the ground and took the cornerback to the hospital.

The narrative listed on the report seems to dispel the speculation that Talib shot himself, offering that Talib had been shot "by an unknown suspect."

The bullet, according to the police report, entered Talib's right thigh and exited his right calf. Police were not notified until Talib had been taken to a hospital in a 2015 Rolls Royce, according to the report.

The report does not say whether Talib had a weapon. One gram of marijuana was found during the investigation, but the report does not say whether the marijuana belonged to Talib.

No charges have been filed, and the investigation by Dallas police remains open. The NFL continues to investigate the incident as well, and Talib faces the potential of league discipline even if no charges are filed against him.

Talib was shot the day before the Broncos visited the White House. The Broncos concluded their offseason program last month, but Talib has remained in Denver working with the team's medical staff during his recovery.

As the Broncos' offseason program drew to a close, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said two weeks ago that "our goal is to have him ready for camp, like all these guys.''

The Broncos' veterans will report for training camp July 27, with the first full team practice on July 28.

Talib, 30, signed with the Broncos in 2014 and had three interceptions last season, including two he returned for touchdowns.
