Brandon Meriweather's attorney says his investigation has "confirmed" that the Patriots safety was not the shooter -- and, in fact, was "nothing but a peace-keeper" -- in the incident last month in which two men were wounded by gunfire at a party in Apopka, Fla.

Adam Swickle, a Fort Lauderdale attorney, told the Orlando Sentinel that all the witnesses he and his investigators spoke to "confirmed that at no point did Brandon have a gun, or threaten to shoot, and did not shoot anyone." Meriweather, he said, "was nothing but a peace-keeper."

The two victims in the Feb. 28 incident -- Nico Glendale Stanlery and Quentin Louis Ramone Taylor -- told Orlando attorney John Morgan that Meriweather was the shooter.
