Police Indentify Shooter, But No Charges Will Be Filed In Vick Case

In what appears to be the end of the Michael Vick birthday party shooting fiasco, Virginia Beach Police announced that they’ve identified the shooter. However, no charges will be filed in the case. Vick himself is not a suspect.

Here is the full statement released by 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.”

Saying Vick “dodged a bullet” in this case might not be appropriate… but it’s not a bad description. It’s very unlikely that Vick will face any sanctions from the NFL or the Eagles at this point, but there’s little doubt that whatever leash Vick is on probably got a little shorter.
