At about 1 a.m. Saturday morning Bowling Green police officers arrived at The Registry apartment complex near WKU’s campus for a disturbance call.

There was a party there and officers were already there from another disturbance occurring that spilled out into the parking lot. While officers were there they heard gunshots.

According to a police report, a Bowling Green police officer spoke with the members of the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity that had hosted the party.

Witnesses said WKU football players began the fight, mainly one player from Florida who kept saying he “was from Florida and didn’t like these Kentucky boys.”

Police weren’t exactly able to determine who fired the shots, but interviewed a couple of people and have some potential subjects.

They’re unsure if they are real suspects or not, said Ronnie Ward, public information officer for the Bowling Green Police Department.

“We located some evidence of some shell casings at the incident but it is unclear if its from the scene,” he said.

The report also stated that several .40 Caliber shell casings were found in the parking lot directly in front of the C building.
