The female UCF student then pointed the gun at the suspects. That caused both the suspects to run away and for one suspect to drop his gun, according to deputies.

It turned out the suspect’s handgun was actually a pellet gun, according to deputies.

Both students were unharmed.

A perimeter search involving a K-9 unit and air search did not locate the suspects, according to authorities.
