Knoxville College students threatened by man with a handgun

KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A dispute over a basketball game at Knoxville College turned ugly after a player threatened others with a handgun.

Officers responded to a call about five males with guns in the gym at Knoxville College. Upon their arrival, discovered that the only person with a gun was the actual caller.

The suspect, described as a black male between 18 to 20-years-old, made the false call after a group playing basketball benched him due to his lack of defense. The suspect then confronted the group with a handgun.

Police are still investigating the identity of the suspect and the circumstances surrounding his call to police.
