PHILADELPHIA (AP) -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.''
Radio station WIP, citing unidentified sources, reported the alleged shooting victim argued with Harrison at Playmakers bar. The victim left and headed to his car, Harrison followed and gunfire broke out, the station reported. The alleged victim was shot in the hand and did not identify the shooter, according to the radio station.
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.''
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league is aware of the report and is ``looking into it.'' Harrison's agent, Tom Condon, did not immediately return a call.
A source told WIP that ballistic tests showed the shots were fired from a custom-made Belgian weapon, and police determined Harrison owns that kind of gun.
Police went to a Philadelphia car wash owned by Harrison and questioned him about the gun, the station said. Harrison acknowledged owning such a weapon, but told officials it never left his suburban Philadelphia home, the radio station reported.
The source told the station a gun was discovered in a bucket at the car wash, and tests showed it had fired bullets that matched those at the scene.
