- At 10:25 p.m. on Oct. 6 in a parking lot in front of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority, a student pulled a gun on her friends. The suspect had just returned to campus with her boyfriend after a trip home, and when she arrived, she greeted her friends at the sorority house before going to say goodbye to her boyfriend. Her two friends watched the couple interact from the window when they noticed their friend point something toward the window with a flashlight. When the suspect returned to the house, her friends asked what was being pointed at them. The suspect revealed that it was an unloaded gun with the safety on. The victims were alarmed and reported her to a faculty member who called the police. Since the suspect did not have a FOID (Firearm Owner’s Identification) card, she was in multiple violations and was given a notice to appear in court for disorderly conduct. The boyfriend was banned from campus.

The suspect recruited one of their other friends and headed over to the other dorm. Once there, the suspect started yelling at the victim to try and get her to leave. When the victim refused, the suspect pulled out her stun gun and activated it twice. The suspect then grabbed the victim’s hair and pulled her out of the dorm.

All residents were cooperative with the police when the party was shut down.
