Raleigh, N.C. — A man attempted to rob a group of North Carolina State University Students in a car, according to the university’s police department.
The students were in a car in the parking lot at of the Avent Ferry Complex, which is up-scale university housing.
He pointed a handgun at the students and tried to take the vehicle they were inside. The students drove away from the man, and as they did, he fired several shots at the car.
No one was injured and nothing was stolen during this incident, officials said.
Last month, students reported a similar incident to university police west of the McKimmon Center. Three men drove up next to the student alongside the road and stopped. They pulled a gun on her, and she ran away, police said.
One man got out of the car and walked toward the student with a gun, and she ran away, according to police.
University police said the suspect fled from the scene and they were not able to find him.
Police told students on Saturday that if they ever feel unsafe walking alone to contact Safety Escort Services at 919-515-3000.
