Ask police brass or the head of the University of Memphis, and they'll tell you that the Memphis Police Department moving on to campus into an unused building has nothing to do with a string of shotgun robberies that happened near the school.
They say they just want make the school and surrounding community safer. But nearly a week later, students like Zach Beaver are still talking about the shotgun robberies.
"Of course we've been hearing about the buzz about the shotgun robber and the three robberies over close to campus," Beaver said. "But we're not too worried about it, cause we haven't had anything real close to our house happen."
Beaver and his roommate John Arnold live near campus in an area that's always patrolled by university police. Even though they feel pretty safe, they hear about crimes in their neighborhood.
"Last night we heard that someone got robbed right down the street, on Spottswood right down here," Arnold said. "That's about all I've heard of, besides people walking around breaking into cars."
