TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - Police say a football player from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma was among three people injured when a fight broke out at a Tahlequah nightclub.

Police Chief Nate King told the Tahlequah Daily Press (https://bit.ly/1PDAEk5 ) that one of two people shot was an NSU football player. Another person was stabbed in the Friday morning fight at Club Effx.

None of the injuries was considered life-threatening.

Two people were in custody and were being questioned Friday. Officers say the suspects did not attend the 8,500-student university.

Athletic department spokesman Cedrique Flemming says the department wouldn’t identify the player or comment on “the conduct or discipline” of athletes. The school administration, in a statement later Friday, noted only that the incident occurred and declined further comment.
