HAMMOND | Purdue University Calumet police detained an Oklahoma man Thursday with a handgun and several magazines of ammunition on suspicion he was stalking a female student of the school, officials said.

PUC Police Chief Anthony Martin sent an email to students stating campus police responded at 12:57 p.m. to a stalking complaint from a residential female student.

Wes Lukoshus, spokesman for PUC, said Friday police apprehended Christian Miller, of Stillwater, Okla., who is not a student, in a vehicle parked outside University Village, 2440 173rd St. He said Miller and the female student had a previous relationship.

Police recovered a handgun, ammunition and several magazines of ammunition. Lukoshus said no shots were fired and officers arrested Miller without incident.

Lukoshus said police confined the man at the Hammond Police Department jail. He said he didn't know if charges would be lodged against Miller.

Martin's email said there was no threat to the safety of students, faculty or staff on campus as a result of the incident.
