Police in Tallahassee, Fla., have issued an arrest warrant for a white man who was caught flashing a gun when he tried to stop a group of four Florida A&M students from entering an elevator, ABC News reports.
The gun-wielding man, identified as Don Crandall, Jr., is seen in the two-minute video revealing his gun as he was trying to block the four college students from getting on an elevator at the Stadium Centre apartment complex in Tallahassee.
“You ain’t got a key for the building? You don’t belong in the elevator… Right there is my key. There’s my key,” Crandall told the students late Saturday.
“Sir, you bringing out your gun, what’s your purpose for that?” one of the students asked the man.
The Tallahassee Police Department said that a warrant has been obtained for Crandall for improper exhibition of a firearm. “After reviewing all of the evidence and consulting with the State Attorney’s Office, a warrant was obtained for Donald Crandall, Jr.,” police said in a statement.
Crandall, a general manager at a nearby hotel, has since been terminated by Pax Hotel Group after the video of the incident went viral. “Pax Hotel Group believes in bringing up and adding to the communities we are a part of,” the company said in a statement. “Our team has gone ahead and took the actions that were necessary to uphold our beliefs.”
