At least four members of Western Kentucky's football team are under investigation for allegedly assaulting two people in a frat house Sunday.

According to a TMZ Sports report, a group of masked men went into the Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike) fraternity house in an allegedly retaliatory attack that sent one person to the hospital. The names of the players involved have not been released.

Police were called to the Pike house after "several" football players arrived in an attempt to fight. An alumni member of the fraternity attempted to calm the situation down but was allegedly assaulted, along with a current member of the frat. 

Officers were able to find one member of the football team who admitted going to the Pike house to fight. The officers were told football players went to the house in retaliation for another person who was assaulted at Pike the previous night.

Members of the frat allege players were carrying guns and one had a box-cutter knife.

No arrests in the case have been made at this time.
