NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -Two University of Oklahoma athletes stabbed at a nightclub during a brawl that reportedly involved guns, knives and tire irons were identified by police on Tuesday.
Football defensive end Frank Alexander and freshman basketball guard Ray Willis sustained knife wounds during the Sunday morning altercation, officers said in a news release.
Alexander, 18, was treated and released from Norman Regional Hospital. Willis' condition wasn't immediately available, although police said both stabbing victims required surgery.
Nineteen-year-old Rachel Taylor, who was struck by a vehicle outside, was treated at a hospital and released. Police added that the incident was under investigation, but no arrests had been made, contrary to reports that a man had been arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
The fight erupted about 2:30 a.m. after a number of people tried unsuccessfully to crash a private party at the club and allegedly attacked invited guests after they were denied entry, police said.
Emergency dispatchers were told that people were using knives, guns and tire irons during the fight. Before officers could arrive, callers reported that some had been shot or stabbed.
Willis and Alexander were taken by private vehicle to the hospital, according to the news release.
The melee occurred after the fourth-ranked Sooners beat Chattanooga 57-2 in their season opener.
OU football coach Bob Stoops declined comment, except to acknowledge that a couple of athletes had been hurt.
Basketball coach Jeff Capel, athletic director Joe Castiglione and university President David Boren all issued statements but none identified the players involved.
