Police still have no suspects in the early Saturday stabbing that killed two at a Nashville bar, including the brother of San Francisco 49ers quarterback CJ Beathard, but they have named a person of interest. The Tennessean reports police want to question Michael D. Mosley, who they say is one of four people seen in surveillance footage released in the wake of the stabbings at the Dogwood Bar. "The investigation shows Mosley was present," the Metro Nashville Police Department tweeted. Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni III, 21, were killed; police say the third victim, who suffered eye and arm injuries but survived, is a 21-year-old University of Tennessee student.

NBC News reports all three victims were 2016 graduates of Battle Ground Academy in Franklin, Tennessee. WKRN reports police have said the incident was spurred by "an unwanted advancement made by a man toward a woman in the bar," with friends of the victims telling the station that the three stepped in to help the woman and were subsequently stabbed. (49ers coach Kyle Shanahan gave a moving speech in the wake of the news.)
