DALLAS — Authorities are working to pinpoint the location where Aqib Talib was shot during the early morning hours Sunday.
Aqib Talib told the Dallas Police Department he was at a park when he was shot, but authorities are investigating if he was possibly shot at a strip club where two others were shot.
TMZ released video allegedly taken during the shooting at the Vlive club early Sunday morning. The video shows people standing around just before the shots are fired.
Police are looking into the possibility Talib, a cornerback with the Denver Broncos, was shot at the club at that same moment.
Talib gave police a different story. He claims he was shot while hanging out with a large group of people at Hamilton Park around 3:40 a.m.
"I heard a single gunshot and fell to the ground," a police report says Talbin allegedly told investigators. "Everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened."
He was driven in his white Rolls Royce to Medical City Hospital Dallas. The police reports states the bullet bullet entered the rear area of his right thigh and came out the calf.
"He’s doing fine," said Shunte Nettle, a friend. "He’s in good spirts.”
Nettles says don’t vilify the victim.
He says Talib volunteers with his youth football group and mentors and coaches students.
”He’s a victim of gun violence," he said. "That’s it. He’s still in the community, a community activist.”
But, the NFL player has been involved in other incidents involving guns and clubs.
In March of 2011, he was accused of firing a gun at his sister's boyfriend. However, the aggravated assault charges filed against the player were dropped. And in April of 2015, he was once again charged with aggravated assault after becoming involved in an alleged altercation with his brother at club. But those chargers were also dropped.
Monday, Talib was supposed to join his team at the White House to meet President Barack Obama and celebrate the Broncos' Super Bowl win.
Instead, police are investigating if he was involved in a shooting at a strip club.
Police are interviewing witnesses. So far, no charges have been filed in the case.
