Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib will not face discipline in the form of a fine or suspension from the NFL for his actions in a shooting in June 2016, per two NFL sources. The 10-month investigation by the NFL has been closed, the sources said.

Talib must complete a firearms safety course and also submit a list of all firearms he owns to NFL security, according to NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy.

In October, Dallas police ruled Talib shot himself on June 5 while standing in a park in Dallas.
