Greensboro College Student Wanted in Assaults on Campus Has Been Dismissed from the College
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Earl Gaddis Jr., a Greensboro College freshman sought in the assault of two college employees on March 20, has been dismissed from the college.
Gaddis is being sought by Greensboro police on a felony charge of assault inflicting serious injury and a misdemeanor charge of simple assault in that incident, which led to a brief lockdown on campus.
Gaddis ran from campus after the incident, and the college has no information on his whereabouts.
“His warrants remain active, so officials throughout the U.S. are aware that he is wanted,” said Susan Danielsen, department public information officer.
The two employees involved in the incident – Calvin Gilmore, director of campus safety and security, and Matthew Long, dean of students – were taken to a hospital for testing after the incident before being sent home that evening. Gilmore, a staff member since 1982, and Long, a staff member since 2007, returned to work within a few days of the incident.
