Three Duke University football players were expected in court Tuesday on weapons charges

At about 3 a.m. Sunday, officials say Duke University Police heard gunfire coming from a vehicle near the Jarvis residence hall on Duke's East Campus.

Investigators say a gun was fired in the air and nobody was hurt.

Now, three students, Brandon Putnam, 19, Kyle Griswould, 18, and John Drew, 18, face charges of felony possession and discharge of a weapon.

They've all been dismissed from the football team. The university also said the trio will not be allowed to return to campus pending resolution of the charges.
