Guilty verdict in Harrison gun case

January 28, 2009 12:36:51 PM PST
A Philadelphia man who says he was shot by Indianapolis Colts receiver Marvin Harrison has been convicted of a misdemeanor for giving police false information about the incident. The April 28 shooting occurred near Harrison's car wash in North Philadelphia. Investigators said the shots came from a gun owned by Harrison, but said they have conflicting accounts of who fired it.

Dwight Dixon said he will appeal Tuesday's misdemeanor conviction for filing a fictitious report. Police said he initially gave them a fake name and told them two unknown men shot him during a robbery attempt.

The judge dismissed two related misdemeanor counts.

Dixon later said Harrison was the shooter and filed a civil suit filed against the NFL player.
