“On April 13, 2016, the University of South Alabama Police Department received an anonymous report that a person in the Student Center may have been carrying an ‘unconcealed gun,’” the university statement begins, adding that “USAPD officers arrived at the location and, following an on-site interview with a student wearing an empty gun holster, issued a campus judicial citation to the student.”

“Upon further investigation, it has been determined that the citation should not have been issued and it has been rescinded,” the university concedes. “University Police are conducting an internal investigation of the matter.”
