Details of the February 21 Case:

According to the criminal complaint, around 5:03 a.m. on February 21, a known man came to the Clarion University Police Station to report an incident that took place at Reinhard Village. The known man stated that Kyle Henry Craig came to Clarion to celebrate his 21st birthday.

The complaint states that Craig went out with some of his friends and was brought back to the known man’s apartment at Reinhard Village around 3:00 a.m. The known man was sleeping, but he got up to help Craig, as “he was very intoxicated and vomiting.”

The known man, along with two other known men, were trying to take care of Craig, the complaint states.

Shortly after, Craig became upset and stated that he wanted the keys to his vehicle, but (the known men) refused to give him his keys. Craig became angry and went outside to his truck, according to the complaint.

He came back to the apartment, kicked open the apartment door, and pointed a handgun at (the known men) and stated, ‘Give me my (expletive) keys,’” the complaint states.

One of the known men “jumped on Craig’s back and grabbed his hand which the gun was in.” While the men were struggling with Craig to get the gun, it went off, and a bullet went into the living room wall and exited the bedroom wall where another known man was in, the complaint continues.

According to the complaint, the known man who was being interviewed stated that he grabbed the gun, walked outside the apartment, and took the clip out of the gun. At this point, Craig came out of the apartment and ran into the woods.

Clarion-based State Police located Craig on 5th Avenue and arrested him. He was taken back to the Clarion University Police Station, the complaint states.

The following items were taken as evidence for the case:

– one 9mm casing;
– one 9mm bullet; and
– one Ruger 9mm handgun.

Damage to the front apartment door was also observed by Clarion University Police.
