MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Rhodes College has banned a student for having guns on campus.

In a Campus Safety alert, the university says another student reported finding a bag with two guns in a stairwell in East Village around 1 p.m. Sunday. A campus safety officer secured the weapons and called Memphis police.

The school says the weapons belonged to a student who was moving out of the residence hall. The weapons were confiscated and the student was banned from campus for violating school policy, which prohibits weapons of any kind on school property.

A spokesman for Memphis police says the student isn’t facing any charges.
