FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Colorado State forward Xavier Kilby was arrested after he was accused of pointing a gun at teammate Ronnie Aguilar's head, police said Monday.

The 21-year-old Kilby was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and prohibited use of weapons, police spokeswoman Rita Davis said. No one was injured.

Kilby, of Phoenix, did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment.

Police received a report about 2:54 a.m. Sunday of a weapon being discharged at Kilby's apartment, Davis said.

Davis said Kilby pulled out a small revolver after he and Aguilar argued in the living room, pointed the gun at Aguilar's head and then pointed the gun at a couch and discharged the weapon. Davis said teammate Stephan Gilling was in the living room, and two other people were in the apartment at the time, Davis said.

Davis said Aguilar left the apartment after the shooting and went home and called police. Officers arrived at Kilby's apartment and arrested him without incident, Davis said.

Coach Tim Miles issued a statement through the school saying Kilby would not be allowed at team activities until further notice.

"Our expectations for the student-athletes in our program is that they are commendable citizens who are held in high regard. This type of behavior is neither acceptable nor tolerable," said Miles, who took over the program last month.

Kilby averaged 4.0 points and 2.6 rebounds in 28 games last season. Aguilar, a redshirt freshman center, was a reserve.
