Denver Broncos cornerback, Aqib Talib, shot at Dallas strip club

- A member of the Super Bowl winning Denver Broncos team is out of the hospital after being shot at a Dallas club over the weekend.

Cornerback Aquip Talib is still in North Texas recovering from a bullet wound in his leg. He graduated from Richardson’s Berkner High School and has a home in the area.

Talib and another person were shot early Sunday morning when a fight broke out at the V Live Club in the 1300 block of Empire Central.

FOX 4 crews reporting at the scene of the crime saw broken glass and pools of dried blood inside the club, just past the entrance.

Police said the fight started inside the club. One person pulled out a gun and started firing. Then the fighting continued outside in the parking lot where another person was shot.

Police are still looking for the gunman.

Talib, a three-time Pro Bowler, is expected to make a full recovery.

He made headlines last year at a Downtown Dallas nightclub when he and his brother were involved in a fight.

Also, five years ago he and his mother were charged in Garland for shooting at his sister’s boyfriend. But the charges were dropped due to lack of evidence.

The NFL suspended him for four games in 2012 for violating the league’s drug policy and last season he was suspended for one game for poking the eye of an opposing player.

The Broncos confirmed Talib will not travel with the team to be saluted by President Barack Obama at the White House Monday. He had said last week he was looking forward to the trip.

Talib is entering his ninth NFL season. He is two years into a $57 million deal with the Broncos.
