Two former Auburn football players were killed and a current player was wounded after an alleged shooting at an apartment complex near the Auburn, Ala., campus Saturday night.
Auburn police chief Tommy Dawson said Sunday night former Tigers Ed Christian and Ladarious Phillips suffered fatal gunshot wounds.
Eric Mack, a sophomore offensive lineman who was expected to play next season, suffered a gunshot wound and was receiving treatment at a nearby hospital, Dawson said.
A third person not associated with the Auburn football team was killed in the incident at the pool party, according to Dawson. Two other people are in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, he added.
Three capital murder charges have been filed against shooting suspect Desmonte Leonard of Montgomery. He has yet to be apprehended, Dawson said.
"I'd like to reach out to Mr. Leonard to turn himself in today," said Dawson. He did not say if charges had been filed against any other individuals, but the police are looking for two other "persons of interest."
"We do have a motive, but we're not going to release that today," he said.
The incident escalated from an argument between several men around University Heights complex's pool to a gunfight.
All three players were part of Auburn's 2010 recruiting class, but only Mack is still on team.
--- Disgruntled cornerback Mike Jenkins reportedly is expected to show up at the Dallas Cowboys' minicamp this week.
Jenkins may not participate in the offseason team activities, but he will be with the team, NFL.com reported Sunday.
The five-year veteran has been pushing for a trade during the off-season. However, as late as last week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he has no intention of granting the cornerback's wish.
Jenkins has skipped the previous sessions of the team's voluntary offseason program, and is scheduled to earn $1.05 million in the final year of the rookie contract he signed as a first-round pick in 2007. Jenkins also underwent offseason shoulder surgery.
