Police: Suspects Found in Penn State Riot

Police in State College, Pa., say they have identified numerous suspects in a riot that followed the firing of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.
  

The department said in a statement Thursday that the people are under investigation for crimes such as riot, attempted arson and other counts. Investigators are also reviewing video footage.
  

Police are not saying how many arrests were made following Wednesday night’s riots, in which crowds toppled a television news van and at least one photographer was pelted with a rock.
  

Students flooded downtown State College for about three hours after Paterno and university president Graham Spanier were fired amid a growing furor linked to their handling of sex-abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach.
