Police seek leads in fatal mugging of Pennsylvania football player

Authorities have continued to search for leads in the fatal mugging of a western Pennsylvania college football player.

Timothy McNerney was a running back for Washington & Jefferson College, about 20 miles from Pittsburgh, when he and a friend were mugged coming home from an off-campus bar early Thursday.

The friend got away and called for help, saying up to six men had attacked him and McNerney, a 21-year-old senior who graduated from Knoch High School in Butler County.

McNerney was later found unresponsive near the robbery site about 4 a.m. and pronounced dead a short time later a hospital.

Other students say they've been targeted for random violence in the past, but Washington police say they've not received any such reports.

The Washington County coroner has ruled the death a homicide.
