Arrest documents obtained by the station state the student had met Stovall, who is not a student at the school, hours earlier on Instagram and invited him and a second man to visit her dormitory room.

Once he was escorted to the victim's room, Stovall allegedly held a gun to the student's head and demanded to know if she had been intimate with anyone he knew, the documents claim.
