Friday Crime Vids – The UCF Crime Scene

If you haven’t seen it yet, the below video footage of officers responding to a man-with-a-gun call at a University of Central Florida dormitory was released this week.  It shows officers quickly and carefully responding to the call and searching for the reported gunman, who turned out to have committed suicide in his dorm room prior to officers arriving.

In addition to the firearms seen in the video, police later recovered explosive materials in bags near the man’s body. Thankfully, those didn’t detonate, and the alleged gunman wasn’t able to carry out his reported plan to corral and kill a number of people on the campus by pulling the fire alarm.

This incident was another reminder, though, of the unpredictability of human behavior, especially when it comes to violence.

Have a safe weekend!
