YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Youngstown State University Police have charged two teens in connection with an incident that prompted a lockdown at YSU and several businesses across the city on Monday.

Robert Allen, 19, and Dennis Hubbert, 18, are both charged with felony charges of inducing panic after an altercation at the Kilcawley Center.

Hubbert is also charged with disorderly conduct after an apparent fight outside of the YSU Police Department between him and Allen's sister after the lockdown was lifted. 

According to city Law Director Jeff Limbian, Allen's sister and Hubbert, who are both YSU students, began arguing in the Kilcawley Center just after 11 am Monday, when Allen's sister then called her brother, who is not a student, for help.

Limbian said once Allen got there, Hubbert proceeded to yell that Allen had a gun and ran.

Hubbert had originally told police that Allen had threatened him with the gun, then showed him the weapon.

Limbian said police nor city officials at this point believe Allen ever had a weapon.

Allen ended up turning himself into police Monday after they got in touch with his family members.

Allen had been booked into jail on an unrelated charge involving drug possession.
