Two University of Tulsa football players are arrested after marijuana and an automatic weapon are found in a campus dorm room. 

The teens were arrested shortly after midnight in the John Mabee dormitory on the TU campus. A search warrant was obtained and officers recovered marijuana and a Kel-Tec Sub2000 9mm rifle. 

They were both arrested on a complaint of possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and the possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Arrested were Korey King, a wide receiver for TU and Lazarus May, a freshman defensive player.

The University of Tulsa issued the following statement: 

“The safety of our students, employees and visitors is our top priority. While laws regarding student privacy prohibit the university from commenting on students’ status, we can say that Korey King and Lazarus May are no longer on the TU football team as of Wednesday.”
