PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia man who says he was shot last year by free-agent wide receiver Marvin Harrison remains in critical condition after being shot again.

Dwight Dixon was found shot multiple times in the city's Fairmount section late Tuesday morning.

A spokesman at Hahnemann University Hospital said Dixon, 33, remained in critical condition Wednesday.

Police have not made an arrest in the case.

Dixon was convicted of a misdemeanor in January for lying to police about the 2008 shooting. His lawyers said he lied because he feared Harrison, who at the time was a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

Investigators determined that a gun owned by Harrison was used in that shooting. No charges were filed because authorities said there were conflicting accounts of who pulled the trigger.
