Police are investigating an incident between four Black Florida college students and a White man who pulled a gun on them on Saturday as they tried to enter an apartment building, BuzzFeed News reports.
Isaiah Butterfield, a Florida A&M University student and one of the men involved, posted a 10-minute video on Twitter of the confrontation between himself and the man, who was identified by social media users as Don Crandall and an employee of the Baymont Inn & Suites by Wyndham Hotels. Members of an activist group are calling for him to be fired.
In the video, Crandall, who says he’s a resident of the building, refuses to let the group of men into the elevator, saying that they don’t live there. He then briefly takes out his gun before placing it into his pants pocket.
