USF Campus

The University of South Florida texted all the teachers and students that are on campus, alerting them of a possible gunman. This took place Monday, October 5, 2009 at 2p.m, In Tampa, Fl where the University of South Florida is located. The text message that was sent said, “EMERGENCY: Armed intruder on Campus. Stay inside. Lock doors. Emergency personnel responding.” (CBS News). Policemen said that they received a phone call saying that there was a gunman standing outside the library on campus. Nobody actually saw a man holding a gun or threatening anyone, but the police still investigated and are trying to get to the bottom of what had happened. There will be updates with any information or news on the investigation. But for now, students should be very careful and always very alert to situations like this which we hope wont happen very often in different schools or public places.
