    An "active threat" is defined as any incident which creates an immediate threat or presents an imminent danger to the campus community. In addition to offenders armed with firearms (active shooters), other types of weapons or instruments may be used by those who want to cause harm.

    I'm just now wending my way through local media reports this morning and noticed this on WDIV website. I don't understand why all Mott campuses are closed

    Yeh it strikes me as odd too --- until 100 PM--are they psychic

    Or is it insiders saying they heard talk on social media?

    Or a bomb scare? Why would you not "say" bomb scare?

    How can you say active shooter when nothing is occurring ??

    I have not seen "active shooter "threat" warning-how can that be ??

    strange indeed my dear!!
