STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Another Connecticut football player has been identified as the second victim in Sunday morning's fatal stabbing at the University of Connecticut.

Brian Parker, a 19-year-old sophomore wide receiver from Sarasota, Fla., sustained minor injuries in the attack that killed teammate Jasper Howard outside a university-sponsored dance.

Parker, who is academically ineligible this season, is identified in a police report stemming from the arrest of Johnny Hood, a Hartford man taken into custody after the fight on charges of breach of peace and interfering with police.

The incident report says Parker identified Hood as one of those involved in the attack. Hood was arraigned Monday and ordered held on $100,000 bond.
