Denver Broncos star Aqib Talib was shot during a fight early Sunday, at a Stemmons Corridor strip club in Dallas, reports The Dallas Morning News.

According to authorities, a customer pulled a gun and shot one person around 2:45 a.m. inside the V Live club on Empire Central Drive near Interstate 35E. As the fight continued, a second individual was reportedly wounded outside the club. Both victims were taken to a nearby hospital, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Per a written statement released by the Police Department, detectives are also investigating a gunshot victim at Medical City Dallas Hospital — to determine whether that person was involved in the strip club shooting. Among the wounded, was Talib, who was transported to the hospital in his Rolls-Royce, reports WFAA-TV. Meanwhile, Denver Broncos’ vice president of public relations, Patrick Smyth, confirmed that Talib, 30, had suffered a nasty gunshot wound to the leg.

Talib, who graduated from Richardson ISD’s Berkner High School in 2005, made headlines last year after he and his brother were allegedly involved in an altercation at a downtown Dallas nightclub. A LUXX club employee told police that someone fired a shot in the air as he tried to break up a fight among three men. In 2014, Dallas police apologized to the cornerback after they incorrectly reported the NFL player was arrested for public intoxication at the Synn club in downtown Dallas, when it was actually his older brother, Yaqub Talib, who was apprehended.

Surprisingly, the three-time Pro Bowl pick’s questionable past doesn’t stop there. In 2011, he was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he and his mother were accused of shooting at his sister’s boyfriend during a domestic dispute. The charge was later dropped. Not to mention in 2009, the Cleveland native was jailed on charges of simple battery and resisting arrest without violence after he allegedly punched a taxi driver in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Last season, the NFL even suspended Talib for one game after he forcefully poked an Indianapolis opponent in the eye after a play, a violation of safety rules.
