You probably won’t see this story on the evening news tonight since it doesn’t fit the president’s narrative of guns being evil and gun owners being the problem.
Early Sunday morning a man carrying an ax was breaking car windows. Since the local police were busy it was up to the campus police officer to respond.
According to FoxNews,
The student was identified as Ryan McMillan, who had celebrated his 21st birthday Sunday. University spokeswoman Kelley Reese told the Dallas Morning News. McMillan was a sophomore transfer student from Fort Worth studying pre-hospitality.
UNT spokeswoman Margarita Venegas says police responded about 1 a.m. to a report that someone was breaking car windows in a parking garage about two blocks from campus. KDFW reported that university police were asked to respond to the situation because local police in the town of Denton were busy handling other calls.
When the officer responded, Venegas said McMillan “advanced” toward him with the ax in his hand. The officer, whose name has not been released, shot and killed McMillan.
The officer, who was not injured, has been placed on administrative leave pending the result of an investigation by Texas Rangers.
The university’s student newspaper, the North Texas Daily, posted a grainy 10-second video of McMillan walking through the parking garage earlier in the evening with the ax in his hand.
