Rowan Holds Informal Meeting on Recent Police-Involved IncidentLast Edited:
Rowan University held a special informational meeting for students Friday morning to discuss concerns surrounding a police-involved incident that took place on campus earlier in the week.
Students began to question the actions of police after a video surfaced on social media showing officers pulling two students over at gunpoint on campus.
Police officials say officers followed proper protocol after a concerned citizen reported on Monday, October 1st, that they allegedly saw a man with a handgun get into the black Dodge Charger the students were driving.
The Friday, October 5th, meeting gave students the chance to share their concerns about how the officers handled the situation.
University officials say they hope the meeting will help open the dialog between police and community.
"This is a tough situation but we're going to get through this untied and I think today is the first step to that healing process," said Rbrey Singleton, president of the Rowan Student Government Association.
During the investigation, no weapon was discovered in the vehicle.
