Xavien Howard’s name appears in an official incident report concerning a shooting at the home of his former agent, Damarius Bilbo, which happened in June 2020.

The Miami Dolphins cornerback has been requested numerous times by police to be interviewed, but they have been unable to obtain that face-to-face meeting, according to the Miami Herald.

Via the report:

“He has declined to speak to them, per the Herald. According to the Herald, the latest request was made in the last few weeks.

Attorney Darren Heitner reiterated to the Herald the same statement he provided to PFT, denying that Howard was involved in the incident.

Per the Herald, Howard initially declined to be interviewed in August, claiming that he was battling COVID-19. He has since declined to be interviewed, according to the Herald.

Police, per the Herald, interviewed Ray Bryan Gibson, one of five others named in the incident report. Police have not been able to reach Gibson since August, according to the Herald. He has denied involvement in the shooting, per the Herald.

Per the Herald, Gibson’s phone was off during the incident. However, police (per the Herald) have determined that another person named in the incident report — Leonardo Kenyun Underwood — twice called Gibson on the day of the shooting. Underwood is a friend of Howard’s, per the Herald.”

It should be noted that Howard is not suspected of firing the gun. Luckily, no one was injured, and the investigation is ongoing.
