Campus Safety Alerts Student Body of Monday Night Incident in Residential Building

By Laken Franchetti, News Editor

On Tuesday, Executive Director of Campus Safety Alex Wiltz sent an email to the campus community detailing an incident that occurred within a residential building on Monday night. 

A student reported that a former student threatened them in a College residential building, and said that the threat included a reference to a weapon. Campus Safety contacted the Gettysburg Police Department for assistance, and the individual that made the threat was arrested on campus by the police.

“There was no indication of a threat to the greater community during the time of the incident and there is not a continued threat to campus,” said Wiltz. “College Life staff have been working to follow up and provide support for the students directly impacted by this incident.”

The email detailed Counseling Services information if students were impacted by this event. Their office is available on a walk-in basis during business hours or by calling them at 717-337-6960 for an appointment.

Wiltz closed the email by reminding the student body to keep entrances to residential buildings secure at all times and to not provide access to your residence hall to those who do not live there.  Campus Safety can be contacted at 717-337-6911 for concerns.
