West Virginia police arrest gunman at university campus


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A man has been arrested after police say he led authorities on a chase through the Marshall University campus while he carried a gun.

Huntington Police Chief Joe Ciccarelli tells local media outlets that police received a call Monday afternoon reporting a suspicious person with a gun walking toward the college campus. Both Marshall Police officers and Huntington Police officers responded. When the suspect saw the first responding officer, he fled on foot.

As police chased the suspect, authorities say he threw his 9 mm pistol onto the roof of the college's Communications Building.

Police arrested the man minutes later and identified him as 19-year-old Brian Nelms-Jolly. He is charged with possession of a concealed and deadly weapon and fleeing on foot.

It is unclear whether Nelms-Jolly has an attorney.
