According to Kennesaw State University police, a student with a gun was robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday morning outside the campus residence halls.
Kennesaw State University police say the student was in the parking area loading his car when the robbers got the drop on him. The crime has students on both sides of the campus carry law expressing concern.
Calyse Callaway, a student at Kennesaw State University student, said that if it had happened to her, the result would have been the same.
“I don’t have a gun. So, if someone came up to me, I wouldn’t have a way to get away. Most I could hope for is someone comes out to help me,” Callaway told WSBTV.
“I don’t think it’ll do you much good if you don’t have your weapon out already if you’re being attacked or being assaulted,” KSU student Antwan Ward said. Ward told Petersen he isn’t a fan of the new campus carry law but admits criminals will be packing either way.
The holdup happened at the Austin Residential Complex, outside building 300. Within a couple of hours, campus police sent out an email to alert students and faculty. Police say around 3:40 a.m. Tuesday, two men pulled guns on a student who was packing up his car. The victim had a gun too, but was forced to hand it over.
Luckily, the victim wasn’t hurt, however, police say he didn’t give them a description of the robbers.
