N.C. student charged with bringing guns on High Point University campus

North Carolina

HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina university student has been arrested on charges of bringing guns on campus.

High Point University issued a statement Tuesday saying there was no immediate campus threat. The statement says campus security confiscated two firearms from a student after a classmate reported him, and the gun owner was removed from campus. No one was hurt, and the case was turned over to local police.

The High Point Enterprise reports a 19-year-old student was being held Thursday on two counts of having guns on educational property.

High Point Police Chief Ken Shultz told the newspaper the case “is an example of how it was done right” because a fellow student reported the guns so police could intervene.

A police spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking further comment.
