RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nevada football players were at a Halloween party where three people were shot to death and a Wolf Pack basketball player was hurt in a fight there but was treated and released from the hospital, school officials said Monday.
Two 19-year-old suspects have been arrested in connection with the fatal shootings after a fight erupted at the party at a residence in an upscale southwest Reno home early Sunday, police said.
Charles C. Kelly, 21, Truckee, Calif., was identified Monday as one of the victims. The names of the other two 23-year-old victims were released earlier, Derek Jensen of Reno and Nathan Viljoen of Fallon.
Police Lt. Robert McDonald said a preliminary investigation determined the gunshots were fired after a shoving match over people bumping into each other on the dance floor.
University officials confirmed Monday that Tyrone Hanson, a sophomore forward on the Wolf Pack basketball team, was at the party and was injured during a fight. He was treated and released from a Reno hospital, said Rhonda Lundin, director of media services for the athletic department.
Nevada football coach Chris Ault told the Reno Gazette-Journal that some of his players also attended the party but he did not believe any had been involved in the fight or shooting.
Ault said his players are held to a code of conduct but he didn't believe any players had violated the code and no disciplinary action was expected.
``They are allowed to go to a party,'' he told the newspaper on Monday.
Two 19-year-old suspects, Samisone Taukitoku and Saili Manu, were arrested on suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and brandishing a firearm. Their bail was set at $500,000 each.
About 75 young people, some wearing costumes, were in attendance at the time, investigators said.
