Howard University officials address the crime, violence near campus

Howard University officials said Tuesday they are committed to increased security on campus after two reported incidents happened last weekend that were instigated by young people not affiliated with the college.

In a virtual town hall for students and their parents, top brass from Howard said that there was a crowd of unruly youth who were dispersed by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) from Banneker Park across from the campus.

Then a short time later, there was a melee at a Subway sandwich shop on Georgia Avenue that was taped by several people and spread on social media platforms, officials said. They also said that Howard University students were not the ones that started the melee.
