Suspect apprehended following gun incident on OU campus

A man was arrested, and taken into custody when he was found in Broken Arrow, following an incident on OU's Norman campus. The man, identified as 5' 8" 150 pound, Michael Joseph Childers,allegedly was once a student at the university.

The alleged incident occurred Friday in Kaufman Hall, on OU's South Oval. 

OU President David Boren said in a press release Friday that the incident, "never constituted a threat to members of the general university community, but was considered a domestic dispute between two individuals."

The issue caused the University to put it's emergency notification into play, which sent countless e-mails, text messages, and phone calls to students, faculty, and staff at the university.

The alerts contained information including the garb, physical characteristics, and suspected vehicle used by Childers.
For now, Boren seemed to be content with the arrest made, saying, "There is no evidence that anyone else was involved or that anyone else was being targeted."
