The house’s occupants are all graduate students. Police are investigating the incident; see the message that went to campus (below).

Our Family Communications Philosophy specifies that parents and families will be notified of incidents involving weapons, which is why you are receiving this message.
I have no additional details beyond what is in the message below. However, I can assure you that Wake Forest, University Police, and city police are taking this very seriously and are investigating. There is no greater priority than the safety of our students and the campus community.
With best wishes,
Betsy Chapman (’92, MA ’94)
