Original Post: DeLand Police are investigating a Sunday morning incident that left a Stetson University student severely injured.

At 2:15 a.m. Sunday, DeLand Police responded to a disturbance call at the Athens Commons housing complex.

Based on our initial investigation, it was determined that a large group of Stetson University students had gathered when an argument broke out and later led to a male student being injured.

The suspect was identified by witnesses as possibly being a member of the school’s football team and had fled before police arrived.

However, investigators have determined the suspect is a former football player and student at the school. The victim remains hospitalized. Police continue to investigate this case and more information will be released as it becomes available.
