Two people were arrested when police responded to reported shots fired at the 315 Exchange on Three Notch Street in Troy early Saturday morning.

A statement released Sunday morning by Troy University Athletic Director John Hartwell identifies the pair as student athletes and also notes that both have been suspended.

Brooke Bowie, 21, a university basketball player and Jadarius Garner, a university football player, were both arrested by TPD for disorderly conduct.

“The University will continue to gather information about what happened and we will act accordingly as a result of the outcome of the investigation,” Hartwell said in the statement.

Multiple police units arrived at the bar about 2:20 a.m. and found a large crowd in the bar parking lot, according to information from the Troy Police Department.

Police officers found no injuries as a result of gunshots, but did take two incident/offense reports from victims who were injured during a fight that happened before officers arrived.

Troy Police officers stayed on scene until the crowd had broken up. This case is still under investigation by the Troy Police Department.

    Wasn’t a local sheriffs deputy in a bad accident this week?
    This makes “BREAKING NEWS” but that doesn’t?
    Whats wrong here? Am I the only one who sees a problem with this?

      I have contacted both the Sheriff and the State Troopers and neither have provided information. All I know is there was a wreck on Hwy 29. I hope to have details on the crash to publish tomorrow.
