Missouri State University’s Safety and Transportation Department issued a crime alert Friday regarding three incidents of window breakage on or near campus.
According to a press release, a pellet or BB gun was used to bust out the windows of two buildings, one north of campus at the corner of Elm street and Florence avenue, and the other at Garst Dining Hall. Officials also believe the gun was used to bust out the windows of a vehicle parked in Lot 31 at the corner of John Q. Hammons Parkway and Elm.
Don Clark with MSU’s Safety and Transportation Department says he’s not sure yet if the three incidents are connected, but says they don’t represent a rising trend on campus.
“It’s fairly unusual to have somebody shooting at the windows with a BB gun or pellet gun. We do occasionally have some incidents of glass being broken, but unknown ability to determine exactly what broke it or how it got broke,” Clark said.
According to the press release, a number of suspects have been apprehended by police. Officials also reported two other incidents of glass breakage in vehicles, but causes are still undetermined.
