This message is to make you aware of a former student, Andrew James Walker. This subject has a history of mental illness and recently has expressed hostility towards members of the UNCG community. The UNCG Police Department has received information that Mr. Walker may be attempting to obtain a firearm in High Point. He should be considered dangerous. Mr. Walker is a white male, 38 years-old, and has grayish black hair. He is possibly operating a 2005 white Toyota Corolla, license WRV-5200. If you come in contact with him, notify UNCG Police as soon as possible, (336) 334-4444

UPDATED: The UNCG and High Point Police Departments have determined that Mr. Walker, the subject of our last alert, left North Carolina in the past couple of hours. We are working with several law enforcement agencies to determine his exact location. Mr. Walker will be banned from campus once he is located, so the community should still notify the UNCG Police if he is seen on campus.
