A Philadelphia man who accused former Indianapolis Colts receiver Marvin Harrison of shooting him has died from wounds sustained in another shooting. Philadelphia police say 33-year-old Dwight Dixon died Friday. Dixon was wounded multiple times by an unknown shooter in July. Police say the investigation continues.

Dixon was convicted in January of lying to police about the earlier shooting, which happened April 28, 2008. His lawyers say he initially lied to police because he feared Harrison.

Investigators determined that a gun owned by Harrison was used in that shooting but declined to file charges because of conflicting accounts of who pulled the trigger.

The Colts released Harrison in February. He remains a free agent.
