Complete Vick statement on shooting

Eagles QB Michael Vick and his representatives released a statement Thursday regarding the mounting questions surrounding his whereabouts and if he was involved in a shooting outside a restaurant where he was celebrating his 30th birthday last week.

The following is the complete statement from Vick, as published by the Philadelphia Inquirer:

“On June 25, 2010 I attended a birthday party held in my honor at The Guadalajara‚Äôs Restaurant in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

“After I left the event, I learned that a man was shot outside the restaurant.

“I want to assure everyone that I had nothing to do with that incident. I left the restaurant prior to it occurring and did not witness what happened.

“Following the incident, I reported it to the Philadelphia Eagles and to representatives of Commissioner Roger Goodell of the NFL. In addition, I cooperated with and answered any and all questions from Law Enforcement officials investigating this matter. My statements, from the beginning, explained that I was not there at the time of the shooting and had no knowledge of the events surrounding it. I have been completely truthful and fully cooperative from the very beginning and will continue to cooperate with Law Enforcement and the NFL as this investigation continues.”
