    Gunman robs Memphis students in class

    The Associated Press • January 15, 2009

    MEMPHIS — Authorities say a man disguised in a wig burst into a classroom and robbed students at gunpoint at a small private college in Memphis.

    LeMoyne-Owen College President Johnnie Watson says 18 students were in the English classroom when the man barged in Thursday.

    Watson says the man — who had a handgun — ordered students to toss their purses and wallets on the floor. He then fled the campus. No shots were fired and no one was hurt.

    Police searched the campus and the surrounding neighborhood but made no immediate arrests. The campus was temporarily locked down and classes were canceled for the rest of the day. The school has about 800 students.

    Watson says the gunman was photographed by campus security cameras.

    im so glad that we have these gun free school zones. im sure all the people over at the Brady campaign understand how they work so well at keeping guns out of our schools...

    makes sense to go to a gun free zone, where the law abiding people won't have a guns to resist.

    Didn't mean you can't resist without guns, if thats what you are bug eyed about, just less likely.

    It must have been one of thost tactical guns, that's capable of sneaking into gun free zones undetected. Gotta ban those scary things!

    Glocks can pass through metal detectors. That'd explain it.

    no, that would be considered a high-capacity bookload. i believe the legal limit is 10.

    To be fair... In this case, it is lucky that none of the students had a gun and initiated a shootout in the middle of class with the gun man... Lucky for them, he only intended to rob them and leave...

    Overall, I would feel safer on a college campus if students w/ valid ccw permits were allowed to carry on school grounds... While school shootings and such that make HUGE headlines are actually pretty rare... Rapes, robberies, muggings, etc are actually fairly common place on college campuses... Students should have the right to defend themselves...

    You're right it would have been like a movie the students would have went bang bang, then the robber would have shot back and it would have been like pew pew then bruce willis would have done a commado roll through the door way after kicking it open and planted a nuke in the robbers rectum.

    Why do people think their imagination is the way life works?
