Dallas Cowboys star wide out Amari Cooper was NOT shot in a parking garage in Texas -- despite rumors on social media ... TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Oh, and also Amari is saying it himself.
"That was fake news y'all. Everything good over here."
There were rumblings on social media the 25-year-old was attacked in a parking garage early Wednesday morning.
And, in the wake of the shooting death of rapper Pop Smoke, people were freaking out about the possibility of losing 2 notable figures to gun violence in less than 24 hours.
Obviously, Amari's statement should end the rumors -- but just for good measure, we also contacted the Dallas Police Dept. which confirmed nobody named Amari Cooper was involved in a shooting.
Amari's pal, Dez Bryant, says he also spoke with Amari today and confirmed all is well.
