Harrison interviewed by police about shooting in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA -- Indianapolis Colts star receiver Marvin Harrison was interviewed by police about a North Philadelphia shooting this week.

Lt. Frank Vanore said the investigation of the shooting outside a bar Tuesday was continuing. Harrison has not been arrested or charged.

"He was interviewed," Vanore said Friday. "Why he was interviewed, that is all part of the investigation. No one is a suspect."

Vanore told WCAU-TV the shooting occurred near 25th and Thompson streets, near a car wash owned by Harrison and about a half-mile from a bar also owned by the All-Pro receiver.

Harrison's agent, Tom Condon, told NFL Network's Adam Schefter that his client was not involved in the shooting. Condon said reports of Harrison's involvement in the shooting are "erroneous" and the receiver is not the subject of any investigation.

After the first day of their rookie minicamp, Colts coach Tony Dungy said he knew little more than had been reported.

"My phone has been ringing, too, but I don't have any details," Dungy said. "I really don't have any more information than you do."

"We have no credible information at this time, and we will not comment until we do," Colts president Bill Polian said in a statement released by the team.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is aware of the report and is "looking into it."

Harrison has played his entire 12-season career with the Colts and is the franchise's record-holder in every major receiving category - receptions (1,042), yards (13,944), touchdowns (123) and 100-yard games (59). The 35-year-old is one of only four players in league history to top 1,000 receptions.

But after eight consecutive Pro Bowl appearances, last season was the most frustrating of Harrison's career.

He injured his left knee against Denver on Sept. 30, finished with 20 receptions for 247 yards and one TD and missed all but five games.

Team president Bill Polian said in February that Harrison was recovering from offseason arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and had been rehabilitating the inflamed capsule in his left knee. He was not expected to be completely healthy for the start of the Colts training camp July 24.
