    sheltering in place! This is NOT a drill, tension is HIGH!

    Thankfully, school is "on break"....fewer students on campus.


    Yale is NOT isolated from the city, major roads/streets intersect thru the school property.

    latest "hot spot"is elm & howe area with both dorms & academic buildings

    latest alert: confirmed, person with a gun on Old Campus


    yep, I'm there.....was @ a meeting! :banghead:

    Okay, whatta we got now: multiple media sources reporting an anonymous caller phoned either Yale or New Haven LE and said roommate was heading for Yale with a (long) gun. Also a report not as widely reported (i.e., tweeted) confirming report of person with long gun seen on campus. Shelter in place still in effect as LE conducts search of campus.

    this is going

    FYI: Yale is unique as it is a collection of 12 "colleges"....aka individual institutions of study (major).

    the area of "interest" is centered in & about "old college area" BUT is now expanding to other buildings.....the vast # of buildings are of mixed use...residence, eating,study & classrooms

    Just got home and saw this on WTNH. Will it ever end. Are you still at Yale? Stay safe.
    I use to love to walk around the campus when I was in my late teens. Beautiful buildings.

    Still @ Yale, have been asked to remain "just in case" a ME should be needed...

    Very interesting experience to witness the armed response!...My faith in LE has SOARED to the highest level, 'specially for the sensitivity exhibited as they "clear the buildings"

    & of course, I'm @ the old college area!...story of my life, wrong place, wrong time!!

    BUT this does beat dealing with the presumed fall-out from the Newtown report release!

    OK... my local radio report (nowhere near NE) just made it sound like this might be a hoax/prank?

    That is what the local news here is saying also, although they will make sure everything is all clear. Also, they are trying to track down the caller and the police officer said he would be charged with everything he could think of.

    the person who called it in, he should turn himself in, he has to know that they can trace that call.

    If it turns out to be a prank call, I am sure there will be consequences. I mean, I want to be sure.
