Second Witness in Marvin Harrison Shooting

ESPN is reporting the Philadelphia District Attorney Lynn Abraham declined charging Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison despite two witnesses alleging he held a gun during the April 29th shooting outside his North Philadelphia garage. According to the WWLS, Robert Nixon, an alleged victim, gave a previously unreleased statement which corroborates "Dwight Dixon, another shooting victim, and contradict[s] Harrison, who admits that he was in a fistfight with Dixon but insists he was unarmed when gunfire erupted...

"Nixon initially told police he knew nothing about what happened, but four days later he signed a statement saying he was positive that he saw Harrison with a gun in his hand at the time of the altercation, according to the source. In the statement, Nixon said he was standing about 50 feet from the car wash during the fight and was not involved."

Sounds like Dixon has cut Nixon in on the civil suit that you know is coming if they can get a DA to charge Harrison. Thats the only thing driving either of these dudes. Money. Stay tuned for the 20 million dollar law suit.
