BURLINGTON, Vt. -
Some UVM students say they don't feel as safe after a drug-related stabbing on campus Monday.
Two people have been charged and two others are still in the hospital.
Police say one of the people responsible was 19-year-old Joshua Mossburg, who appeared on a charge of assault and robbery in a Burlington courtroom Tuesday.
Police say Mossburg and another teen from Pennsylvania were visiting a UVM student and wanted LSD. That's when police say the three hatched a plan to meet another UVM student, who thought he was going to sell them the drug.
Police say Mossburg and his friends came down to a parking lot on the Redstone Campus, which is surrounded by dorms and the idea was to get the drugs however they could.
Police say soon after the drug dealer arrived, a fight broke out with knives. Three of the young men were hurt.
"Drugs are a problem. People who sell them and people who seek them, you know, coming together for various reasons, really bring a lot of violence with them," says Chief Lianne Tuomey, UVM Police Department.
Tuomey says the stabbing was one of the most violent crimes she's seen on campus in decades.
That's why some students say they're watching out for their safety.
"This is where I live on campus," says Chris Carroll, a UVM student. "So it's kind of scary to think there's people running around causing violence."
Mossburg pleaded not guilty and is being held on $50,000 bail. Police say the drug dealer, UVM student Jarrett Clark, is charged with selling LSD.
Police say more charges are expected.
UVM is promising a review of its emergency alert procedures after many students complained they only heard about the stabbing through rumors.
The school says there was a technical problem with the campus alert system Monday and the stabbing alert was only emailed to staff and faculty, not students.
UVM says it only discovered the problem this morning and fixed it.
On Monday, the school did not activate a more comprehensive system called CatAlert which sends messages to the campus community by email, text, and voicemail's.
The school says it will review that decision and the entire alert system.
"We're going to be doing that. See what we can learn from this situation and try to figure out how to do it better in the future," says Enrique Corredera, UVM Director of Communications.
The school says it decided not to activate CatAlert because police said they had all the people involved in the stabbing and there was no threat to the campus.
