Florida campus evacuated after police found student dead of ‘self-inflicted’ gunshot wound and explosives

Published

About 500 students at the University of Central Florida were evacuated overnight Sunday as police found a student dead inside a dormitory, as well as firearms and explosives.

Central Florida News 13 reported on Monday that authorities found the man dead with a self-inflicted gunshot to the head while responding to a fire alarm around 12:20 a.m.

“[I was] Skyping my girlfriend, doing homework,” sophomore Jason Smith, pictured, told WESH-TV. “I figured it was too late to be another drill.”

According to WKMG-TV, officials found a handgun and assault rifle, as well as several homemade explosive devices just before 5 a.m.

Classes have been canceled until noon on Monday. The evacuated students were taken to the school’s Student Union and the on-campus arena has also been made available for anyone displaced by the evacuation. A nearby parking garage was also evacuated, but reopened Monday morning.

The school sent an alert around 2 a.m. saying there were no further threats reported, a delay that drew criticism from some students.

“I would think that they would let us know faster,” said student Nick Erickson. “It was at least two hours because it was at least 2:00 in the morning and this happened at midnight and we didn’t know anything for at least two hours. It’s sad that it was a student but at least there wasn’t high casualties.”

WATCH: GOP congressman hides in an elevator as veterans try to confront him about his support for Trump

Published

On Thursday, Common Defense, an activist group of combat veterans, followed Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) through a hallway and demanded to know why he isn't doing something about President Donald Trump's lawless conduct.

Crenshaw — himself a former Navy SEAL — tried to shoo them away, and eventually ducked into an elevator to get away from them.

"How can you let a criminal like Donald Trump run roughshod over our democracy and shred everything that you and I fought for?" demanded one of the protesters on a video uploaded by the group. "Like c'mon man. Like how can you just sit there idly by and not do your duty? We need your leadership right now. You cannot be complicit in this man's crimes. It is immoral. It's laid out clearly in the Mueller report."

Rudy Giuliani goes completely off the rails in bellowing interview with CNN’s Cuomo

Rudy Giuliani

On Thursday night, following reports that the whistleblower in the intelligence community was complaining about a call President Donald Trump made to the Ukraine, CNN's Chris Cuomo hosted Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who recently tried to recruit Ukrainian officials to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son. And things went off the rails quickly.

"I don't know the answer as to why it was released but I find nothing wrong in what he did," said Giuliani.

"You don't even know what he did," said Cuomo.

"I find a lot wrong in what you are covering up and what you continue to cover up and what your network continues to cover up," said Giuliani. "Go look. Go look at Joe Biden January of 2018. Bribery 100 percent."
