FAU students Jared Tuck and Anthony Proios were arrested for the Sunday night shooting near Oakwood Apartments. They were arrested as accomplices to the alleged shooter, Thomas Fenech.

An FAU spokesperson confirmed that Proios and Tuck are FAU students, but not Fenech.

According to the Boca Raton Police Department, the shooting involved a drug deal.

On Oct. 30, 8:23 p.m., police responded to a report of shots near 1989 NW 4th Ave. There, they found three victims: Anthony Hernandez, John Addison and Thomas Doyle, none of them FAU students. The three 18-year-olds were taken to Delray Medical Center for their injuries — including bullet wounds in the back and face — the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Doyle told police he and the other victims went to 399 NW 19th St to buy a quarter-pound of marijuana with counterfeit money. According to BRPD, Hernandez paid about $1,200 in fake money.

FAU student Alexander Moreno brokered the deal in Thomas Fenech’s apartment, giving Hernandez’s money to the suspects, he told police.

After the deal was done, the suspects realized the money was fake. Fenech allegedly grabbed an AK-47, went outside, and fired in the victims’ direction, who were driving away in Hernandez’s Mustang.

Doyle told police that he and the other victims didn’t know the area and pulled into a nearby parking lot at 1989 NW 4th Ave. Hernandez was shot in the face, Addison was shot in the back, and Doyle was shot in the hand.

Jared Tuck went back to his Indian Rivers Towers dorm after the shooting. Anthony Proios and Thomas Fenech later joined him, police said.

The next day, after hearing that several people had been shot, they decided to get rid of the AK-47, they admitted to police. Tuck and Proios disassembled the rifle and threw the pieces in the woods near Beeline Highway, 25-30 minutes north of campus, Tuck told police.

Fenech was arrested on Halloween night and charged with three counts of attempted second degree murder with a firearm and shooting into an occupied vehicle. Proios and Tuck are charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with physical evidence.

According to WPTV, Hernandez and Addison are in intensive care at Delray Medical Center, while Doyle has been treated and released.
