WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — Wheeling police say they’re looking for a third person who may have been involved in the fatal beating of a Wheeling Jesuit University student.

Two men are charged with murder, but Detective Sgt. Gregg McKenzie tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1dH9SHq) the suspects say at least one other person was involved in the fight.

McKenzie didn’t immediately return a message Wednesday afternoon.

Twenty-one-year-old Kevin Figaniak of Perkasie, Pa., died early Sunday after an attack on the school campus.

Police charged 22-year-old Craig Peacock of Clewiston, Fla., and 24-year-old Jarrett Chandler of Winnfield, La., with murder. Both remain in the Northern Regional Jail on $1 million bond.

Figaniak was a senior business major who played varsity lacrosse.

A friend who was with Figaniak says they were attacked by three or four men.
