State College police on Thursday confirmed the potential involvement of Penn student-athletes, in addition to Greek-life members, in a large fight that broke out at the Delta Chi fraternity on Sunday.

As a result, four fraternity members were treated for injuries at Mount Nittany Medical Center. Police on Thursday said all injured parties had been treated and released from the hospital.

Police say they have a video of the incident, and are working with university Athletics and Compliance officials to identify those involved in the assault. Names will be released upon any filing of charges.
