time there was no opposition from
neighborhood residents.
However, because of recent citizen
opposition to the plan, Martin said, "We
are (now)evaluating a possible reduc-
tion in the amount of units -
somewhere in the area of 30."
Even if Martin proposes to lower the
total number of units by 30, area
residents said they still prefer a five-
unit per acre density. However, one
resident said, "We will be happy to sit
down with the developer and
negotiate."

ATLANTA (AP) - An Emory
University freshwoman, armed with a
pistol and crouching on a second floor
balcony, held police at bay for two
hours yesterday after a dormitory con-
frontation left another young woman
wounded.
School officials and a tennis teammate
of the armed student said she had been
emotionally troubled recently.
Tom Fernandez, Emory's vice-
president for student affairs, said
Janice Able Nunn of Rochester, N.Y.,
was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital
after she surrendered to police.
SHE WAS charged with one count of
aggravated assault, police said.
The injured student, Abby Jane
Novick, 18, of Roseland, N.J., was in
stable condition at DeKab General
Hospital with a gunshot wound in the
side, a university spokeswoman said.
Fernandez said an alert was posted
for Nunn after Novick was wounded at
Means Hall about 10:30 a.m.
SOON AFTER, he said, security of-
ficer Dick Campbell found Nunn on the
balcony of the Alumni Memorial
University Center. The area within
firing range was evacuated and police
sharpshooters surrounded the building.
Dressed in blue jeans, a yellow
jacket, and running shoes, the woman
alternately cradled her gun and waved
it menacingly.
She also talked to friends through a
walkie-talkie provided by university
security guards, saying at one point, "I
needed someone tok hug me, and I wan-
ted you to hug me."
SHE ALSO SAID, "I think I'm going
to go to the hospital and I'm scared no
one will visit me."
A psychiatrist and several police of-
ficers, who crept up the steps to the
balcony, finally persuaded the woman
to hand over the gun.
Hundreds of people watched from
below as authorities led her away. She
cried and covered her head with a
jacket.
BARBARA HUETTIG, a member of
the Emory tennis team, said Nunn ap-
peared to have problems adjusting to
campus life. "I think she has nt been
the most stable person," she said. "I
know the dean has been talking to her"
She said Nunn and Novick "really
didn't get along."
