Robbery, gunshots reported on Paine College campus

A woman was robbed at gunpoint early Thursday on the Paine College campus, police say.

According to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the 31-year-old woman was on the campus around 1 a.m. when a man approached her near Graham Hall and mumbled something she couldn’t understand. The man then pulled out a handgun and shot two rounds into the air.

The woman told authorities she ran away but was caught by the gunman, who put the gun to the back of her head and led her to her car while demanding money.

After the woman handed over $30, the gunman ran way.

Three witnesses corroborated the woman’s story.
