UPDATE: Arrest Warrant Finally Issued for White Man Who Threatened FAMU Students

The viral video should have been all the evidence needed.

UPDATE: Sept. 17, 2018

Almost a week after a white man pulled a gun on Black college students, which was clearly detailed in a viral video, a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

"After reviewing all of the evidence and consulting with the State Attorney's Office, a warrant was obtained for Donald Crandall, Jr.," the Tallahassee Police Department said in a statement.

The warrant, issued on Friday, is for violation of a state law against improper exhibition of a firearm.

As of Monday, Crandall was still not in custody.

On Sept. 8, the 49-year-old attempted to prevent the four Florida A&M University (FAMU) students from entering an elevator in the Stadium Centre apartment complex. The complex's management said Crandall is not a resident of the building.

"Once we found out he had the gun, it turned into a whole different situation," FAMU student Isaiah Butterfield told ABC News. "We really think he was trying to provoke us to the point where it got violent so he could retaliate with the gun.

"I knew that if this dude even feels threatened, he's going to find any excuse to pull the trigger."

ORIGINAL STORY

A video posted on Twitter, which has gone viral with more than 300,000 views, shows an encounter between four Black college students, and a white man who pulls his gun on them when they were just trying to visit a friend's apartment.
