KALAMAZOO, MI — The student who was robbed at gunpoint inside a Western Michigan University dorm Thursday was targeted, according to WMU’s police chief.
“It was not random. He was specifically targeted. The individual was targeted because of a legal business he was involved in. The suspect knew he had products and proceeds in the dorm,” said Chief Scott Merlo.
I really don’t have the polite words to express the disgust one feels when you are insulted like this. Two individuals managed to access a secured building on the middle of the week, on an afternoon, wearing masks, go to the fourth floor, rob somebody at gunpoint and leave…but all is well?
The incident is the third armed robbery this school year at WMU. In October, two students were robbed between the Sindecuse Health Center and Sangren Hall by suspects armed with a handgun. Then in February, a male student was held up at gunpoint in LeFevre Hall.
