Armed Man Arrested at Arkansas State University

December 10, 2015  | 

An armed man drove onto Arkansas State University on Thursday, sparking a campus lockdown before police took him into custody without any shots fired, a university spokesman said, reports the Associated Press.

University spokesman Bill Smith said the man was taken into custody about an hour after the incident began. The campus remained on lockdown as police inspected the man’s truck, he said.

The school sent an alert early Thursday afternoon urging the evacuation of the student union following a report of an active shooter. A later tweet said there were no shots fired or any reports of injuries.

Jonesboro police spokesman Paul Holmes said a negotiator was sent to the scene to speak with the man. It wasn’t clear what, if any, discussions took place.

This is not too far from my local jurisdiction. The man came onto campus driving a truck and proceeded to do doughnuts on the lawn in front of the student center. He then got out with a shotgun and began yelling a students to run. Campus Police arrived on the scene in less than a minute and contained the gunman. SWAT and State Police arrived quickly and secured the campus as negotiators were called in. After about an hour, the suspect surrendered. No shot were fired and no one hurt. Awesome LE job by all.
