This morning information was received from Cambridge Police that there was a person with a long rifle and body armor in the Main Group Building of MIT. Multiple law enforcement agencies have responded. Stay indoors and shelter in place and report suspicious activity to the campus police dispatch at 617 253 1212 or dial 100 from a campus phone. More updates to follow.

Police responded to report of man w/ gun inside building on Mass Ave. Police searched building w/ negative results. Will update w/ more info
We have a poster with a son at MIT, I remember from the blizzard thread, I think.

Scene is clear. Call unfounded. No threat to public safety in #CambMA #MIT
Yay! Now I wonder who/what someone saw that looked like a person in gear and with a long gun?! :waitasec:
Thank goodness! Could it have been a drill? Do they do those at colleges, or just public elementary/high schools?
