New Mexico State men's basketball player Mike Peake was shot early Saturday after he was "lured" to the University of New Mexico campus by four New Mexico students before an altercation ensued wherein Peake shot and killed one of the students, according to a Sunday release from the New Mexico State police.
In the predawn shooting that led to the postponement of Saturday's New Mexico State-New Mexico rivalry game in Albuquerque, Peake, a junior forward, was shot by Brandon Travis, a 19-year-old New Mexico student. Peake then used a gun he possessed to shoot Travis, according to police.
Travis was pronounced dead on the scene.
New Mexico State police officials said Peake's condition is unknown, however, a statement by the University of New Mexico that was sent to students said he was in "stable" condition.
