Cal Poly Police determined the currently unnamed student had the gun in his room for only a couple of days. After interviewing the student, officers determined he was not dangerous.
“Because of the totality, one of them being he was not a threat, but also since he decided to withdraw from campus and leave the area, we felt it best to that we did not need to file charges at the time,” said Cal Poly Police Chief George Hughes to KCOY.
Cal Poly rules prohibit firearms on campus unless the gun owner has a concealed weapon permit.
