Miami football player shot, killed


University of Miami defensive end Bryan Pata was shot and killed Tuesday night, shortly after leaving the practice field, according to a university official with knowledge of the situation.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement still was being prepared by the university, had no knowledge of the circumstances surrounding Pata`s death.

Miami-Dade police refused to release specific information about what happened.

Miami visit Maryland on Saturday as 2 1/2-point underdogs.
