One person was detained and is speaking to police after they brought an unloaded training rifle to Wright State University.

There is no threat to campus.

Around 11:15 a.m. Friday, Wright State police received a report of a person with a gun at The Hangar dining hall, according to a statement from the university.

“Police found a student with an unloaded training rifle and assessed there was no threat,” read a press release. “That student is meeting with police officers at this time.”

There are no reports the student was acting in a threatening manner, a university representative said.

Wright State’s policy prohibits people from carrying firearms on campus.
