Report: Aqib Talib shot in Dallas nightclub
Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib is reportedly fine after being shot at a Dallas strip club in the wee hours of Sunday morning, according to a Dallas Morning News report.
Talib, 30, was one of three victims in the alleged incident. He had been taken to Medical City Dallas Hospital for evaluation.
From the Morning News' report:
A customer pulled a gun and shot one person about 2:45 a.m. inside the V Live club on Empire Central Drive near Interstate 35E, Dallas police said. Another person was wounded outside the club as the fight continued.
Those two victims were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Police Department said in a written statement that detectives also had interviewed a gunshot victim at Medical City Dallas and were investigating to determine whether that person was involved in the incident at the club.
WFAA-TV (Channel 8) first reported that Talib was among the wounded and that he was driven to the hospital in his Rolls-Royce.
The Denver Broncos confirmed that Talib, 30, had suffered a gunshot wound to the lower right leg and that he was expected to make a full recovery. Talib reportedly was undergoing treatment at Medical City, where he had been in the emergency room.
Talib had previously spent parts of two seasons with the New England Patriots, where he recorded 51 tackles, five interceptions, and one touchdown. He left the Pats as a free agent after the 2013 season, signing a six-year deal with the Broncos.
Interestingly enough, Talib and the Broncos are set to visit with President Barack Obama today, to commemorate their Super Bowl 50 victory.We've spoken with Aqib Talib, who is being treated at a Dallas hospital for a gunshot wound to his leg.
