    NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 02: National Football League player Michael Vick visits BET "106 & Park" at BET Studios on February 2, 2010 in New York City.

    An attorney for Michael Vick says the quarterback was not present when a shooting took place outside a nightclub where Vick had celebrated his birthday.

    Larry Woodward says the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was neither involved nor present when the shooting occurred early Friday.

    Virginia Beach Police spokesman Adam Bernstein said a man sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting at around 2 a.m. outside the club Guadalajara. Vick's party had started there late Thursday.

    Bernstein said he knew nothing about any connection to Vick's party.

    Bernstein said the victim was taken to the hospital. He says the victim and witnesses were uncooperative other than describing the shooter as a black man in a white Cadillac Escalade.

    The Eagles released the following statement about the incident:

    "We are aware of the incident that occurred in Virginia early this morning and are in the process of gathering all of the facts. Until then, we will not have any comment on this matter."
