Christopher Townsend caught with gun in APSU dorm

21-year-old Christopher Townsend was caught by his resident assistant keeping a gun in his dorm room. The resident assistant was conducting a health and wellness check while Townsend was not in the room and found empty alcohol containers, which gave them the ability to do an in-depth search of his room. During the investigation, a G30 Glock handgun with three empty 10-round magazines and a 25-round magazine containing five 9mm rounds were found in a backpack inside the closet. Townsend does have a handgun permit but was not permitted by APSU to carry it on campus. Townsend was taken into custody and charged with having a weapon on school property.
