UOPD responds to reports of potentially armed subject on 13th and Kincaid

UOPD responded to reports of a potentially armed subject on 13th and Kincaid last night. Students were advised to keep away from the area via email and text messages from the UO Alert System.

A little after 9 PM last night, a caller informed police that a man pointed what appeared to be a gun at a woman, according to UOPD spokesman Kelly McIver.

UOPD identified the man based on the caller’s description. After investigation, police determined that there was no gun, but the rather the man had made a gesture with his finger.

The incident was resolved around 9:40 PM.

Any student at the university can register for the alerts via DuckWeb.
