    Hopefully it's nothing. We had a scare like that on my campus the other day. Turned out a bodyguard for a foreign international student had a holstered firearm and a passerby saw it causing an active shooter alert on campus. it was nerve racking for all of 20 mins while we locked in place.

    We live in a world where anything that remotely sounds like a gun shot will be reporter in fear that there is an active shooter.

    I hope it's a false alarm... it would be understandable to be a little more jumpy today considering Vegas.

    Yes thank god. Apparently what’s not a false alarm: Tom Petty died from massive heart attack he had last night.

    Sounds like a prof with issues...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) --

    A USC professor suffered "some sort of an episode" that caused students to believe there was an active shooter at school, triggering the campus scare and police response on Monday, police said.

    LAPD Deputy Chief Phillip Tingirides said the professor, who was not identified, told her students to lock the doors and get on the floor. Then, she began yelling, "active shooter."

    The students became fearful and began texting and calling friends, telling them there was an active shooter on campus, Tingirides said.

    No. Not as of this evening, but not looking good for the rest of the night.
