University officials have confirmed that the two students involved received minor injuries at an off-campus incident on Long Drive. Earlier this morning, both were released after being evaluated at a local hospital.
Because the altercation occurred among students who know each other, police do not believe there is a continuing threat to students or others on or near campus.
The University will continue to look into the matter and provide support to the students involved.
