Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick says he was not involved with a shooting following his birthday celebration in Virginia Beach last week.

“I want to assure everyone that I had nothing to do with that incident,” he said in the statement provided to The Associated Press by his representatives Thursday night. “I left the restaurant prior to it occurring and did not witness what happened.”

Vick said he reported the incident, which occured last Friday, to the Eagles and “to representatives of Commissioner Roger Goodell.”

The former Atlanta Falcons star also said he has been “completely truthful and fully cooperative” with law enforcement and the NFL, and will continue to cooperate as the investigation continues.

The Eagles and NFL have said they are looking into the matter. Goodell told Vick when reinstating him last season that his margin for error was “extremely limited.”
