Police say UTC Student vandalized campus apartments; Walker Apartments closed for clean-up

Chattanooga, Tenn (UTC/The Loop) — A UTC student apparently vandalized several apartments at the Walker Apartments. The student was injured during the spree and taken to a local hospital. Here is the information released by Chuck Cantrell with University Relations.

The University Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Walker Apartment complex at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Upon arrival, officers encountered an individual who had entered and vandalized several apartments.  The subject had become injured during the vandalism and was taken into custody shortly thereafter and transported to the hospital for treatment. The subject has been identified as a UTC student.


Due to presence of bodily fluids in several rooms and to allow police to conduct the investigation, several floors were closed for cleanup and decontamination. The residence hall is expected to be fully reopened this evening.


A follow-up email will be sent when the residence hall is fully open.
