JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Police in Jersey City say they've been trying to contact Tennessee Titans wide receiver and former Rutgers star Kenny Britt to question him about an incident Sunday in which he allegedly drove a friend to the hospital after the man had been stabbed at a party.

Capt. Edgar Martinez says police need to interview everyone who was present at a Jersey City house party Sunday in which someone fired a gun through a first-floor window and Britt's friend was stabbed. No one was struck in the shooting, Martinez said.

"We need to interview all the parties involved, and [Britt] has refused to come in, so the statements that he's putting out that he's cooperated with the investigation are false. We're trying to ascertain his location," Martinez said, adding that authorities are discussing their next steps with the Hudson County Prosecutor's office.

"There was a stabbing and a shooting in the same incident -- and we need to speak to everyone who was there," Martinez said. "[Britt] drove the guy to the hospital. [Britt] was at a dinner, the party, with his pregnant girlfriend."

Britt's agent, Bill Johnson, did not immediately respond to an email from the AP. The Titans also had no immediate comment Monday.

NFL officials will be looking into this latest incident involving Britt and police.
