Virginia Beach Identify Shooter From Michael Vick's Birthday Party

New, comments

The Virginia Beach police have identified the person who shot Quanis Phillips following Michael Vick's 30th birthday party, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Police confirmed once again that Vick is not a suspect. They also said there will be no charges filed because there has not been cooperation from the victim or witnesses.

Here is the full statement from police:

"Investigators were able to determine the identity of the shooter. Unfortunately because of the lack of cooperation from the victim, coupled with the reluctance of witnesses, the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, upon reviewing all of the evidence, has determined that no charges will be filed in this case at this time.  Because the suspect will not be charged, his identity cannot be released by police.  There are no other suspects in this case, including Michael Vick."

This jives with some of the reports that surfaced immediately following the incident that witnesses were reluctant not to release any information.

Presumably, the Eagles will not be releasing Vick because of the incident. A report from the Associated Press popped up over the weekend that the Eagles were thinking about cutting Vick in light of the incident but multiple, high-ranking officials reportedly denied that.
