Police: Univ. Of Memphis Student Brought Loaded Gun To Class
(Memphis) A University of Memphis student is locked up after police say he brought a loaded gun to class before the holiday break.
It happened inside the Life Sciences building on Walker.
Investigators are still trying to find out why George Miller was armed.
They said another student spotted the gun in Miller’s pocket and called police.
Officers said they pulled Miller out of class, patted him down, and found a loaded .40-caliber handgun. They also discovered two loaded magazines in his backpack.
“I’m pretty shocked. In general, I think of this as a safe campus. You hear reports of robberies or muggings, but that’s usually south of here,” said student Jordan Leumas.
Miller could also face disciplinary action since it’s against university rules to bring a weapon on campus.
He’s being held on $1,000 bond and is expected in court Monday.
