On Friday morning, reports surfaced that a man was shot while at the 30th birthday party for Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. The incident raised some eyebrows in the sports world because of the link to Vick, even though some said it was a non-issue.
The Daily Press in Hampton Roads, VA now reports that the man shot was Quanis Phillips, former co-defendant of Vick's in the dogfighting scandal.
But the story goes that Quanis threatened to smash birthday cake in Vick's face, or that he actually smashed the cake in Vick's face. Another version is that someone smashed cake in Quanis' face -- or threatened to smash it in his face. Anyway, the confrontation moved outside -- where I'm told there were several still cameras and video cameras.
Once the confrontation moved outside, Phillips was shot around 2:10 a.m.
Presumably there were witnesses but the Daily Press reports they're unlikely to step forward.
Anyway, from here, things get vague, because some folks who were at the party don't want it published that they were there. Some folks who might have been witnesses to some of the incident don't want it to be known if they were witnesses.
Vick is on probation for the dogfighting charges and reportedly wasn't supposed to be associating with his former co-defendants, such as Phillips.
