On Friday, residents of the Nevils apartment complex received the following strange e-mail from one of the Resident Assistants:
We have been notified about a pellet gun incident, going off from a Nevils apartment balcony, in the Courtyard on Wednesday night 1/23/08. Our East Campus Hall Director Natasha Pedroza is asking for anyone who has information to come forward. This incident concerns the safety of our East Campus community. Thank you for your time and cooperation!
I have no idea if anyone talked to Ms. Pedroza, but I would encourage anyone information to e-mail the Voice about it—anonymity guaranteed, friends! I hadn’t realized that East Campus had gotten so serious that people have been reduced to packing heat, but I guess that’s what the world is coming to.
