Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather is no longer a suspect in the Feb. 28 shooting that occurred in Apopka, Fla., the Orange County Sheriff's Department told ESPN.com.
Two men, Quentin Taylor and Nico Stanley, were injured in a late February shooting and both claimed Meriweather was the shooter.
Meriweather's lawyer, Adam Swickle, claimed his client's innocence in March, insisting the 27-year-old was mearly a witness to the incident and had no part in the shooting.
"We have confirmed that Brandon was nothing but a peace-keeper," Swickle told the Orlando Sentinel at the time. "All of the witnesses confirmed that at no point did Brandon have a gun, or threaten to shoot, and did not shoot anyone."
