Michael Vick Ruled Out as Suspect, No Charges Filed in Shooting
"Unfortunately because of the lack of cooperation from the victim, coupled with the reluctance of witnesses, the Commonwealth Attorney's Office ... has determined that no charges will be filed in this case at this time," Virginia police spokesman Adam Bernstein said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.
Since nobody will immediately be charged, the identity of the person police believe shot Quanis Phillips, a co-defendant in Vick's dog-fighting case, in the early morning hours of June 25 will not be released.
Police said the investigation is still open and encouraged witnesses to step forward.
"With the lack of cooperation, it's difficult for the case to move forward," police spokeswoman Margie Hobbs told FanHouse. "If we get more information, a case can still be brought by the the Commonwealth Attorney's Office."
The NFL and the Philadelphia Eagles had no comment regarding the case's latest development. A message left for Vick's attorney, Larry Woodward, was not immediately returned.
