Brandon Gray, a fourth-year wide receiver, was shot and injured in Pullman early Saturday morning and is in a Spokane hospital in serious but stable condition. Liban A. Barre of Kent, Wash., was killed in the shooting. Police have Pullman resident George Melvin Harris III in custody. WSU Athletic Director Pat Chun released a statement after WSU’s loss at Utah:

Nick Rolovich briefly spoke about the incident to the media following his usual postgame press conference, and Abe Lucas offered his words as well:

Details are scarce, but Pullman Police report that police were dispatched to the 1200 block of NE Myrtle Street at 12:30 a.m. Saturday to respond to complaints of noise coming from a large party of “possibly 200” people. While on the scene, officers heard gunshots and found Gray and Barre with gunshot wounds. Both were transferred to Pullman Regional Hospital, where Barre was declared dead. Gray was airlifted to Spokane. The investigation is ongoing.
