ND official says student murder arrest a surprise


VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) -- A Valley City State University spokesman says the arrest of one of the North Dakota school's football players in a Minnesota murder case was a surprise.

Twenty-one-year-old Cedric Chappell Jr. was arrested Tuesday at the university in Valley City. He is charged in Hennepin County, Minn., with second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder for fatally shooting a man and wounding another outside a Minneapolis bar over the weekend.

Valley City University spokesman Greg Vanney tells the Grand Forks Herald that no "red flags" were raised during Chappell's time at the school. Vanney also says Chappell did not cause any problems when he previously was at the North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton.

Chappell attended the college in Wahpeton for about two years before transferring to Valley City.
