Default University hoplophobia OUT OF CONTROL

Student with Glue Gun Causes Lockdown at Colgate University

It was a scary evening for members of the Colgate University community on Monday evening after the campus was placed on lockdown.

A call came in to Campus Security just after 8:00 p.m. that an individual entered the O’Connor Campus Center, or The Coop, as it’s known on campus with what witnesses believed to be a gun.

Campus Security officials immediately initiated the lockdown and began investigation. After assistance with the individual in question and confirmation of the situation it was determined the student was an art student who was using a glue gun to complete a project.

I prefer my glue guns to be belt fed.
