Three people were shot near the Louisville campus early Sunday morning, two of them reportedly Cardinals football players who were celebrating teammate Lamar Jackson's Heisman Trophy.
Linebackers James Hearns and Henry Famurewa reportedly were identified as the players. All three suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. University spokesman Kenny Klein could not confirm that they were the players shot; Louisville Metro Police Department spokesman Dwight Mitchell said all three are students.
When police responded to a call around 2 a.m. Sunday, they found a man and a woman who had been shot. A third victim, who arrived separately at a hospital, was determined by police to have been wounded at the same time.
A witness said an argument broke out during the celebration and continued onto the street.
Hearns, a junior from Tallahassee, led the Cardinals with eight sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Famurewa, a sophomore from Powder Springs, Ga., had two sacks and 10 tackles.
There were no suspects.
