    Male with a firearm taken into custody by Henrico Police outside J. Sargeant Reynolds

    FROM THE JSRCC DEPARTMENT OF POLICE

    Earlier today, the JSRCC Department of Police received a call about a male walking on Parham Road with an alleged firearm. JSRCC and Henrico County Police immediately responded, encountering a male with a firearm walking on Parham Road near the campus. The individual immediately relinquished his firearm to the police and was taken into custody by the Henrico County Division of Police. No continuous threat to students, faculty, or staff was imminent after the police encounter. If you see any suspicious activity near or on one of our campuses, please contact the JSRCC Department of Police immediately at 804-523-5911.
    I was very curious about this, the e-mail was sent out to students around 1PM today, I just saw it and was curious as to what happened, since it doesn't mention the man doing anything illegal so it could be they thwarted an attempted crazed killer, or some guy was just OC'ing down the street. The campus police/security non-emergency number is 804-523-5219. I called and spoke with somebody and asked what was going on and he wasn't able to provide much information, aside from saying that the man was taken into custody by Henrico Police and that he was on Parham road and never entered the campus. I asked if the man had done or said anything suspicious or threatening, he told me that he was not sure why he was carrying a gun but that there where no longer any safety threats. He referred me to Henrico Police for more information I plan on calling them later today or tomorrow to see if they can shed more light on the situation.

    I also found something interesting on the JSRCC website while looking around, they have a "Behavioural Intervention Team", and list what you should do if you see something specific and what should cause you to report a student to them. For example if somebody you know has recently tried to obtain weapons, you should contact 911 or Campus Police immediately...

    Has anybody heard anything else about this?

    I just perused several Richmond area local TV station websites, the Times Dispatch website and WRVA website and saw no mention of this. If this guy wasn't doing anything illegal it sounds like the clowns in Henrico may have some explaining to do.

    Did a search of Henrico Co. arrests and found nothing there either that was explicitly firearm related.

    Didn't see that wording at all - what I saw was bad enough though:

    You are a Moderate Risk if you make comments about weapons.

    You are a High Risk if you recently attempted to obtain weapons. http://www.jsr.vccs.edu/studentaffairs/bit.htm

    Without other issues such as threats attempting to obtain weapons is not something I need a Head Shrinker for.

    I have a long, detailed video of the Henrico Police explaining how they handle a "Man WithA Gun" Call.

    I'll be real interested to see if they followed protocol.
    Bet they didn't!

    That page pisses me off. I'm thinking about sending a polite email to the school about it - and I live in NC.

    I might send it to theblaze.com too - see how the school likes THAT.

    Why on this planet of the gods would he relinquish his firearm?

    "No continuous threat to students, faculty, or staff was imminent after the police encounter." What continuous threat was imminent BEFORE the encounter?

    Why would you call the campus police for something taking place off campus?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

    Working on it Tess!

    He relinquished his firearm because he was taken into custody (Detained I think). You only have two choices ....use it or give it up.

    Wonder if any of the students would wear a GSL button to class. Just to stir the pot.

    I must confess, I have gone on several wild shooting sprees. Fortunately, the only things hit were a bunch of paper targets.

    During an afternoon news break on WRVA, they covered the story and had a spokesperson for the HPD making some statements. He did reluctantly state that carrying the rifle was not illegal but there were some circumstances he was not at liberty to share. The tone sounded like they were fishing for cover as to how they detained him. Wonder if the guy had just bought the rifle at walmart and was walking home?

    Also Brookland Middle School is not far from JSR, easily within 1000ft of parts of the boundary and parham road, wonder if he gets charged with that as well.

    That's not a violation o STATE law and as far as I've found, he hasn't been charged with anything yet.
