incident this afternoon Burling Library

Dear Grinnell College Community:


This afternoon there was an incident in Burling Library in which a student appropriately called Campus Safety & Security to report a person with a BB gun entering the library.  Safety & Security staff worked with the Grinnell Police Department to identify and remove the Grinnell student with the BB gun.


No one was in danger at any time and there was not any harmful intent.


Please remember that BB guns are not allowed on campus and they cannot legally be shot within the city limits of Grinnell.


We want to thank everyone involved for their cooperation during this incident.


If you have any concerns for your safety, please call Campus Safety & Security at x4600 (641-269-4600).
