(Pauls Valley-AP) -- A Davis man accused of shooting two University of Oklahoma football players during a party has been arraigned on two counts of shooting with intent to kill.

Undersheriff Steve Brooks says Napoleon Lewis III was charged in Garvin County and is being held in lieu of $200,000 bail.

Lewis was arrested at his home, which District Attorney Tim Kuykendall says was accidentally set on fire while Lewis burned his bloodstained clothing.

O-U players Ataleo Ford and Wayne Chambers were shot early Sunday at a VFW Post in Pauls Valley. Both players have been treated and released from a hospital.

Neither player is a starter and both are expected to recover in time for fall practice next month.
