1 Arrested, along with two persons of interest.
Central Connecticut State University was shutdown for about three hours after several 911 calls reported a man walking on campus with a gun, a sword and body armor. An unidentified student was arrested Monday afternoon, along with two persons of interest, officials said.
Authorities released few details about the incident at a press conference late Thursday afternoon. There were no injuries. All three “student-age” male supsects were arrested without incident on the fourth floor of the James Hall dormitory.
“In this situation, our prayers were answered,” said CCSU president Jack Miller. “Everybody was brave and they were calm.”
