An Oklahoma State University employee’s ex-boyfriend brandished a revolver while they talked Monday in a parking lot in the northwest part of campus, OSU police Capt. Richard Atkins said.
He did not threaten her with the weapon, but he said he would kill himself, Atkins said. The woman told police about the incident out of concern for the man.
The man and woman met at about 1 p.m. Monday in the parking lot of the graphic arts studio north of Ridge Drive and McElroy Road, "(in a) very remote part of campus," university spokesman Gary Shutt said. The man showed the revolver and said he would kill himself. After the conversation, the woman contacted police.
Police found the man driving on campus later that day, Shutt said. Police found a revolver in the trunk of his car, but if a person is not affiliated with the university, having a firearm in the trunk of a vehicle while on campus is legal, Shutt said. However, showing a gun on campus is not, he said.
The man was not arrested.
Information has been turned over to the Payne County District Attorney's office, Shutt said.
