LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – University of Louisville police and students met on Wednesday night to discuss recent crimes on campus. There were reports of armed robberies in December and January on the outskirts of campus and students were concerned about text alerts that were sent out following those crimes that were vague in describing the suspects.

“Nobody is eliminated and everybody is a target. Everybody that's a black man automatically has a target on his back and that is something that is unacceptable,” Ken Brown, a student, said.

University Police Chief Wayne Hall says it’s tough with limited information that they often receive from victims.

“As I was telling people here, I don’t think there's anything we can do, but you still go back and look at it again,” Hall said.

Other students expressed concern over a lack of positive interaction with the police and students. While there weren’t any solid solutions, police and students say discussion is the first step.
