    Texas Christian University defensive end Devonte Fields has declined to press charges after telling Fort Worth police that he was beaten and robbed by three armed people.

    Coach Gary Patterson said Fields was the victim but he's OK and attended classes and workouts Tuesday, hours after the incident.

    A police report said Fields at one point struggled with a gunman, and the weapon fired, but nobody was shot and the three people fled.

    Police said the attack happened at the player's off-campus residence when Fields went outside to start his car. A cellphone, a video game system and some clothing items were stolen from his home.

    TCU personnel examined Fields, who declined further medical attention.

    School officials sent an email off-campus crime alert following the incident.
