MILWAUKEE -- Students at Marquette University were put on alert Sunday after several fellow students were robbed. 

Six men were walking home from Water Street when one of them was robbed. Friends of the person who was robbed at gunpoint say they blame their behavior for starting the trouble. 

They say they made a comment about a broken window on a passing SUV when the people inside the car jumped out with a shotgun. The men ran off in different directions, but one of them was robbed. 

The suspect's car is described as a red SUV with a grey stripe, that has one broken back window with tape over the side. 

Marquette University sent out an alert to students, reminding them to walk in groups in order to stay safe.
