Man Arrested After Firing Gun At IU Fraternity House

Last updated on Monday, October 31, 2011

(AP) - Indiana University Police have arrested a 19-year-old Kokomo man after firing a gun outside a fraternity house that prompted a campus security alert.

19-year-old Jeffery Durbin, of Kokomo, is being held at the Monroe County Jail on $10,000 surety and $500 cash bonds after being arrested on felony charges of intimidation, criminal recklessness and pointing a firearm, and a misdemeanor count of carrying a handgun without a license.

Police say they arrested Durbin around 3 a.m. They say Durbin was knocking on the door of a sorority house after he fired shots next door at the Phi Kappa Sigma Fraternity house.

Fraternity members told police a Halloween party was ending when Durbin became irritated, pointed the gun at someone, then waved it in the air and fired a shot.

No one was injured in the incident.
