Washington Wizards franchise point guard John Wall was in attendance at New York's Juliet Supper Club when a gunman killed one man and injured two others Tuesday morning, but was unharmed and "didn't see [anything]," according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

Wall was among several athletes at the club during the incident. In a statement, New York Police Department spokesman Paul J. Browne said, "There is nothing to indicate that any of the well-known individuals in the club that night had anything to do with the shooing." Those well-known individuals include several New York Giants players, as well as NBA players such as Wall, Chris Duhon, and Carlos Boozer, according to a source the New York Times cites.

The Wizards selected Wall with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. In his rookie campaign, he averaged 16.4 points and 8.3 assists, earning Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month honors four times and a spot on the First-Team All-Rookie squad.
