Two suspects, both 23, were stopped and taken into custody shortly after freshman Anayo Iloabanafor was hospitalized with gunshot wounds around 1 a.m., local police said. He was later released, they said.

Iloabanafor, a former track athlete at Bergen Catholic, was attending a party at the Campus Crossings apartment complex, just off Route 322 in Gloucester Township, where authorities said both students and others rent apartments.

Witnesses told police a passenger in a Chevy Camaro fired several rounds from what looked like a silver-colored revolver.
