Student charged with bringing loaded AR-15-style rifle to NC State campus

A 19-year-old was arrested for allegedly bringing a loaded AR-15-style rifle on the North Carolina State University campus, court documents said.

Adam Mahmoud Sulaiman, 19, of Apex, was arrested Sunday and charged with bringing a gun on educational property.

Officers learned a student saw a rifle in an unoccupied truck after 4 p.m. Sunday. Officers responded and saw a Palmetto State Armory PA-15 rifle in the vehicle.

The arrest warrant said his truck was parked on Cates Avenue, near Owen Hall. Police said Sulaiman was dual-enrolled at Wake Technical Community College and NC State.

The rifle was taken into custody along with 46 rounds of 9mm ammunition. No 9mm handgun was located.

The university said a WolfAlert was not sent out as university police handled the situation before any safety threat materialized.

Sulaiman was placed in Wake County Jail under a $5,000 secured bond and was scheduled to appear in court Monday afternoon.
