An undergraduate student was evicted from a University-owned residence early Tuesday morning after police discovered a gun inside the residence.

Having a weapon inside a Penn-owned building is a violation of University policy.

Police were notified about the gun at about 2 a.m. Tuesday and confiscated it shortly after. Vice President for Public Safety Maureen Rush said the student did not threaten anyone with the weapon, but declined to comment on how the Division of Public Safety found out the student had a gun.

DPS spokeswoman Stef Cella would not say what type of gun was in the building and police did not know why the student possessed the gun.

Cella stressed that this incident is unrelated to the shots fired around the same time Tuesday morning outside Copabanana, located at 4000 Spruce St.

No arrests were made, Rush said, and the investigation is ongoing.

According to Cella, the residence in question was not a College House. Rush would not specify which building the gun was found in or the school and year of the student.
