Former NBA baller Lamar Odom is clearing up recent reports that he was involved in a shooting. The two-time champion took to social media setting the record straight about the incident that took place at a New York restaurant. 

Shutting down recent reports by TMZ, Odom wrote, "Just to share the "truth" here with you all. I was near the scene when it just happened and not involved in any way!"

He followed up with a post on Instagram further distancing himself from the shooting.

Odom's comments come after PEOPLE published a report accusing the former LA Laker star's entourage of being involved in a verbal dispute with a group of men that ended in a shootout.
