    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.

    We have a poster with a son at MIT, I remember from the blizzard thread, I think.

    Keeping them and all in my thoughts. Hopefully this turns out to be a mistaken sighting or something :please:

    Scene is clear. Call unfounded. No threat to public safety in #CambMA #MIT

    Thank goodness! Could it have been a drill? Do they do those at colleges, or just public elementary/high schools?
