A man who displayed a firearm from a car on the 3900 block of Walnut Street prompted a UPennAlert Monday night. 

According to the Division of Public Safety's website, around 5:45 p.m. two men in a black Dodge Charger engaged in an argument about parking with another driver, with one displaying a firearm before leaving the area. DPS described the suspect with the firearm as male, dark complected, in his late teens/early twenties, and having a thin build. DPS described the second suspect, who was also in the vehicle, as male, dark complected, and heavyset.

The car was last seen heading eastbound on Market Street at 32nd Street.

The initial UPennAlert was sent to the Penn community at 6:00 p.m., and DPS later issued an all-clear at 6:15 p.m. Police and security officers are patrolling the area.
