Campus security apprehended a young woman in possession of a rifle, ammunition and other weapons on Elon University’s campus Sunday, according to an email sent by Dr. Smith Jackson, Vice President and Dean of Students.

“Elon Campus Police averted a potentially dangerous situation today when they took into custody Alexis Gray, 18, of Holland, Pennsylvania, a student at a Pennsylvania university,” Jackson said in the email.

Gray’s parents alerted her former boyfriend, an Elon student, that she was on her way to Elon and that they were concerned for her welfare. The student notified campus police, who were waiting for Gray when she arrived at the Danieley Center just before noon. She was taken into custody at that time.

Gray is expected to face felony charges of possession of a firearm on campus, and possible other charges. According to Dan Anderson, Vice President of University Communications, an arrest warrant is being prepared.

In the email, Jackson reminded Elon community members to contact Campus Safety and Police for any security concerns or suspicions.
