(CNN) — Two Gonzaga University students could be suspended or even expelled after using a handgun to defend themselves from an intruder in their university-owned apartment, an act which the university says violates the school’s weapons policy.

Gonzaga University, a private, four-year university in Spokane, Washington, says the students violated the school’s weapons policy by having firearms in their apartment, which is in a complex near the campus.

On the night of October 24, students Erik Fagan and Daniel McIntosh were in their apartment when there was a knock on the door. Fagan told CNN affiliate KXLY in Spokane that he opened the door and a stranger, who said he’d just gotten out of jail, asked for $15. Fagan told KXLY he offered the man a blanket and a can of food, but “didn’t feel comfortable” giving the man money because he was a stranger.

“My gut instinct was telling me I wasn’t going to be able to get that door closed before he came through,” Fagan told KXLY.

As the man started coming through the door, Fagan said, he yelled for his roommate, Daniel McIntosh.

McIntosh said he came to the door with his pistol drawn, and the students said the man turned and ran away.

Because the apartments are owned by Gonzaga, both police and campus security responded when Fagan and McIntosh called 911.

According to the Gonzaga’s Executive Vice President Earl Martin, all university housing is patrolled at regular intervals by campus security, though this particular apartment complex isn’t gated and secured key cards or codes aren’t required for entrance.

A short while after the incident, police captured the man, whom they identified as a six-time convicted felon.

At about 2 a.m., campus security officers returned to Fagan and McIntosh’s apartment and confiscated a pistol and a shotgun from the apartment.

Dean Chuang, attorney for Fagan and McIntosh, said the shotgun is owned by Fagan, who uses it to hunt periodically, and it wasn’t used in the incident.

…one of the students had never lived in campus housing and was unaware of the school’s weapons policy. The other, he said, was aware of the policy but didn’t think it applied to him because the apartment isn’t on campus.
