Man pleads guilty to attack on 2 Minnesota college teachers
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A student accused of beating two teachers at Normandale Community College in Bloomington has pleaded guilty.
Twenty-one-year-old Gavin Hutson, of St. Paul, pleaded guilty to felony assault, two counts of misdemeanor assault and carrying a gun without a permit. Sentencing is scheduled for June 17.
Authorities say Hutson struck a 51-year-old female instructor several times and also assaulted a 47-year-old male faculty member who intervened in the Dec. 12 attack in a classroom.
The complaint says Hutson’s teacher asked him to stay after class to discuss a remark he made to another student. Hutson allegedly knocked her to the floor, where she lost consciousness.
Hutson was apprehended in the college’s parking ramp. Police say they found a handgun in his backpack.
