Man pleads guilty to UNM gun scare incident

The University of New Mexico is warning students to be on the lookout for 24-year-old Daniel Arushanov who came to campus with a gun last week after being released from MDC.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The man who took a gun onto the University of New Mexico campus causing a big scary says he’s guilty.

Daniel Arushanov faced a federal judge Monday on charges from the December incident.

Arushanov said he took a gun to the UNM food court to test police response, but taking a gun on campus is a crime.

On Thursday, he was ruled competent to stand trial, but Monday he took a plea deal.

He faces 10 years in prison. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
