SANTA MARIA, Calif. (AP) - Two college basketball students have been arrested on California's central coast on suspicion of murder.
A statement by the Santa Maria Police department says the students were arrested Saturday by detectives probing the Dec. 30 killing of 23-year-old Terence Richardson.
The suspects' names and the circumstances of the killing were not immediately released.
The students play for Allan Hancock College, a community college of about 11,000 students whose main campus is in Santa Maria.
The college said in a statement it is "disappointed and shocked by the arrest of two of our student athletes."
