Man brings gun on TSU's campus

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Move in day at Tennessee State University ended on a bad note.

A parent said spotted a man putting a gun in his waist band and called campus police.

Shortly after, campus police arrested the man near the edge of campus at 33rd Avenue and John A Merritt Blvd.

A spokesman for the university says the man is not a student. Despite Saturday's arrest, some students say they are not bothered.

"I feel like I'm safe. I've always felt safe," said Marquael Green, a fifth year student at TSU.

Saturday's incident comes just months after campus officials beefed up its security measures last spring after a shooting on campus. Those involved in that shooting were also not TSU students.
