Gonzaga University has agreed to review its weapons policy as two students who used a pistol to drive an intruder from their apartment appeal their probation for having guns in their university-owned accommodation.

President Thayne McCulloh said that the school will use the incident "to re-examine its policy."

The Spokesman-Review reports that the university informed Erik Fagan and Daniel McIntosh over the weekend they were on probation and could be suspended or expelled for any more violations of the Spokane university's code of conduct.

Their lawyer, Dean Chuang, said Gonzaga should consider student safety above all else.

The incident occurred Oct. 24when a homeless man came to their door demanding money and trying to force his way inside.

Campus security returned the next day and confiscated McIntosh's Glock and Fagan's shotgun.
