ANDERSON, Ind. - Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Randolph will not be charged in connection with a nightclub shooting after giving police investigators a second statement.
The native of nearby Marion provided the second statement Thursday night in connection with the Aug. 22 shootings for which his brother, Roger, has been charged with three counts of battery with a deadly weapon.
Roger Randolph, meanwhile, was arrested on a weapons charge early Friday in Atlanta, Ga., his third weapons-related arrest in three weeks in three cities, Anderson police Detective Terry Sollars said Friday.
Madison County Prosecutor Rodney Cummings had said Zach Randolph might face criminal charges for not telling investigators all he knew about the shootings in his first statement hours after the incident.
"He cleared up any irregularities or confusion that may have been in his first statement," Sollars told The Associated Press. "There may have been some omissions in his first statement."
Telephone messages seeking comment were left Friday with the player's attorney, James Voyles of Indianapolis, and his agent, Raymond Brothers of Atlanta. Both accompanied Randolph for the second statement Thursday, Sollars said.
