Police are investigating video that went viral showing a heated argument in which a white man pulled out his gun on a group of young Black men because they were on their way to their White friend’s apartment.
In the video, the man, whose name hasn’t been released by Tallahassee Police Department, appears to be arguing with four young men. The man holding the gun in the video has been identified by social media users as an employee of the Baymont Inn & Suites by Wyndham Hotels. Members of an activist group are calling for him to be fired.
The man blocks the group of college students from entering the elevator while holding his gun the Stadium Centre apartment building at 699 Gaines St.
The video shows three of the young men are black and one is white.
The Famuan is reporting the group of men are Florida A&M University students who were trying to visit the apartment.
On the video, the man in a baseball cap confronted the FAMU students and told them they were not getting into the building unless they were residents with keys.
