Brno police escort man with gun from university premises

Police officers escorted a young man carrying a legally held gun away from a university building in Brno on Saturday, a police spokesperson said on Tuesday. The man was acting distracted and agitated in an auditorium holding 200 people during an open day event at the city’s Faculty of Education.

Doctors must now decide whether he will be allowed to retain his gun license.

Universities in Czechia have been on greater alert since 14 people died in a shooting incident at Prague’s Charles University in December.
