Dec 1, 2016

A Culver-Stockton College student faces gun-related charges in connection with an incident that led to the campus in Canton, Missouri being locked down for nearly three hours Tuesday night.

The Lewis County Sheriff's Office said Maxwell Webber, 19, of St. Louis is charged with one count of Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Armed Criminal Action.

Sheriff David Parrish said in a statement that a call came in at 7:50 p.m. Tuesday that a person was being threatened with a gun near C-SC's fieldhouse. The college proceeded to lockdown the campus in response.

Parrish said the unidentified male victim said it was Webber who pointed a handgun at him. Webber was in his dorm room when officers took him into custody.

The lockdown ended about ten minutes after Webber was in custody.

C-SC President Kelly Thompson praised students, faculty and staff in a statement for their efforts to lock down the campus in a timely manner.

No injuries were reported.
