PITTSBURGH (AP) - Three members of Duquesne University's club hockey team were struck by a hit-and-run driver after an argument at a bar early Monday morning.

It is the second violent altercation involving Duquesne athletes this year. On Sept. 17, five basketball players were shot following an on-campus party. Mike Heath, 22, a forward from Richmond, B.C., was treated at Mercy for a neck injury, cuts and abrasions, and then released. Mark Heier, also 22, refused treatment.

Timothy Fish, 22, was listed in fair condition at Mercy Hospital with a compound fracture and severe cut to his left leg that required surgery, according to police and the hospital.

Hockey is a club sport at Duquesne, meaning it gets only partial funding from the school and does not fall under NCAA guidelines.
