Woman accused of threatening students on SUBR campus with handgun
BATON ROUGE - Southern University Campus Police reported the arrest of a woman accused of brandishing a pistol while threatening two students at the North Baton Rouge university last Thursday.
20-year-old Brittany Henry was booked on charges of carrying a firearm on school campus, aggravated assault and obstruction/interference with an education institution.
Investigators said two students reported that Henry, a non-student at SUBR, came to campus just after noon on Thursday and brandished a small semi-automatic pistol while threatening them. Police determined that while Henry wasn’t a student, she did have the school’s permission to be on campus while classes were in session.
Campus police said the school was immediately placed on lock down. SUPD were able to determine that the imminent threat was no longer on campus and the lock down was lifted. Parents of SU Lab students were notified of the lock down and that there was no immediate threat to student safety.
