Surveillance footage shows a fatal shooting on the New Mexico campus where the rival player was allegedly lured


New Mexico State Police on Tuesday released surveillance video that appears to show the fatal shooting in the parking lot of the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque that involved a basketball player from a rival school.

The rooftop camera overlooking a parking lot showed three people approaching New Mexico State University junior Mike Peake from behind, punching and shooting him before he started shooting. The shooting killed 19-year-old Brandon Travis.

Peake was indefinitely suspended from the team in connection with the No. 19 shooting, though he has not been charged. He was hospitalized after the shooting with a leg injury that required multiple surgeries. Travis died outside a University of New Mexico dormitory hours before the Lobos were to play the Aggies. That game was canceled along with the December 3 rematch.

Authorities said Travis conspired with two other University of New Mexico students and a 17-year-old girl to lure Peake onto campus. The video showed three people approaching Peake while his back was turned before one of them struck Peake in the legs with a baseball bat.

The video appeared to show Peake firing a gun multiple times. He was shot in the left leg before video showed him pulling out a gun and firing multiple shots at one of the men, according to police, who said Travis took four bullets. The video showed Peake hopping on his right leg and joining three teammates in a car.

Police said the men placed objects in the trunk of a car before driving away. Peake’s gun appeared to be one of the items. New Mexico State University officials identified the players as Issa Muhammad, Marchelus Avery and Anthony Roy. Those players were suspended and missed Wednesday night’s game against Santa Clara. None of them have been charged in the shooting.

New Mexico State University announced Tuesday that it would hire a third-party outside investigator to review the events surrounding the shooting, separate from the police investigation.
