A 22-year-old Kansas University student was arrested Monday night, accused of possessing a gun inside a scholarship hall, KU police said.
Maj. Chris Keary, assistant KU police chief, said officers were called about 11 p.m. to Battenfeld Scholarship Hall, 1425 Alumni Place, by the hall director who said she had received numerous reports that a resident had a gun in his room.
Keary said police made contact with the man, recovered a gun and cited him for unlawful possession of a firearm on certain government property, a misdemeanor. The man was given notice to appear in Douglas County District Court. Keary said university buildings have signs stating guns are not permitted inside, which is in accordance with state law.
