It was reported today that the Dallas Police Department has officially concluded its investigation, and the conclusion is that Aqib Talib was not a victim of aggravated assault, as the police report originally stated in June, but that he shot himself.
Per @rlopezwfaa, Dallas PD has completed investigation of CB Aqib Talib incident in June and has determined Talib shot himself.— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 4, 2016
Talib initially told police he didn't know who shot him. Incident report listed an "unknown suspect."— Nicki Jhabvala (@NickiJhabvala) October 4, 2016
This comes a few weeks after it was reported in September that Talib was not expected to be punished by the NFL, barring any new evidence uncovered.
However, these new reports do not seem to indicate that there is new evidence in the case, only that the Dallas PD has finally completed its investigation.

Who knows what to make of this, as it seemed fairly obvious from the get-go that Talib accidentally shot himself. We will see if the Dallas PD officially concluding that changes anything with the NFL.

This is an unfortunate hiccup in what has been an amazing season for Talib and the Denver Broncos so far.
