According to Patrick Wade, the University police spokesman, the two students said they were in an argument with the three suspects, which prompted the incident. 

The alleged perpetrators were not present at the scene when officers arrived, as reported by the University police. 

However, the police obtained security camera footage from local businesses which will be used in further investigation. 

“Once we review the security footage, we will decide whether the footage should be accessible to the public, to help with identification of the individuals,” Wade said.

This investigation is still ongoing and further updates are yet to come.
