SPOKANE, WA - Two Gonzaga University students who were placed on probation after using a pistol to scare off an intruder now have their weapons back.
Erik Fagan and Dan McIntosh retrieved their firearms Tuesday night.
Campus security confiscated McIntosh's pistol and Fagan's shotgun after the students reported that a man had come to their apartment door Oct. 24 demanding money and trying to force his way inside. The homeless man left when McIntosh displayed his pistol.
The students were placed on probation for violating the university's weapons policy. Gonzaga students are not allowed to have guns in their homes if they live on campus or in a university-owned apartment.
McIntosh said that they did not know they could pick them up immediately until our sister station in Spokane informed them of an e-mail they received from the university stating that they could have their guns back.
The only restriction was that the students had to move the weapons off campus to a non-university residence which would be in compliance with the weapons policy.
