Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper took to Instagram Wednesday to let people know he was OK after a now-deleted tweet falsely reported he'd been shot.

Cooper responded to a tweet that said he was shot in a Dallas parking garage, NBC News reported.

"That was fake news y'all, everything good over here," Cooper wrote on his Instagram story Wednesday afternoon.

"We have NOT found any validity to that tweet occurring in the city of #Dallas. At this time, there has been NO shooting incident occurring in the city of Dallas," the Dallas Police Department wrote in a tweet.

Former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant also responded to the hoax.

NBC News reported the account that posted the tweet, The Offseason, was either deleted or taken down by Twitter.

Cooper has played five NFL seasons, including the last season and a half with the Cowboys. He was selected by the Oakland Raiders fourth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft.
