Surveillance video of the beating death of a Washington & Jefferson College football player shows several people in the area when the crime occurred, Washington police Chief Robert Lemons said Tuesday.

“We can't judge anything off it,” he said. Lemons declined to elaborate.

Running back Timothy McNerney, 21, a Knoch High School graduate and resident of Penn Township, Butler County, was beaten to death in an apparent robbery while walking home from a bar about 2:30 a.m. Thursday with fellow football player Zach DeCicco, 22, of Jefferson Hills. McNerney was found about 90 minutes after being attacked. He was pronounced dead at The Washington Hospital.

DeCicco, who suffered a broken nose and bruises, told police that he fought with three men who tried to steal his cell phone, police said.

The senior defensive back said he managed to break free and run back to his dormitory, where he told friends what happened. He then called campus police, who called city police at 2:54 a.m.
