Mosley is accused of stabbing 22-year-old Beathard and another man to death on Saturday in a bar fight in Nashville. The altercation was apparently over a woman.

The fight moved outside and that's when Beathard and two others were stabbed. Beathard and the other man were pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police were asking for the public's help in identifying four people wanted for questioning. They released surveillance video of three men and a woman at the bar.

Mosley was on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Most Wanted List, according to CBS affiliate in Nashville WTVF.

The team said in a statement that the 49ers family was "shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the tragedy."
