Gunman on my campus right now

Well I'm reporting from Stony Brook University NY where a student is going through the main area of campus with a gun in a VT/Illoinois copycat attempt. We've been watching from the window on the top of the library, where I work on computers.

The first alert was sent at 2:03pm.

Hopefully this will NOT make the national news (i.e. no shootings) but we're all in lockdown right now. Our emergency alert system is alerting all cell phones.

I guess I'm just dumbfounded. I can't actually say I thought this would never happen, with the school shootings happening every day. But now that it is....my brain is kinda numb as I am watching it all unfold.

Shit.....we're on the news now. There is a report of a POSSIBLE injury from the gunman. I say POSSIBLE because they won't officially confirm it.

It apparently started when a jackass decided to steal something from the cafeteria and fought the security guard, pulling out a gun. Now hes running around the academic mall (main area) with the gun.

Why the hell don't we know what's going on?

I started this in here. I wasn't aware that I have the ability to move this. Can I move this?

BTW- anyone in the area: there is a description:

University Police received a report that a young male fled the Student Activity Center Cafeteria and later displayed what was reported as a handgun. The individual was reported to be an African American male, approximately 25 years of age, wearing a black coat and black wool hat. He fled in the direction of Harriman Hall. University Police are searching the area and investigating the report. Remain alert, proceed with caution and notify University Police if you see anyone fitting the description of the individual or anything unusual. You can reach University Police by callling 911 from any campus phone or 632-3333.

Update- the lockdown was stopped.

The all clear was just given. They believe the guy ran off the campus, but we should report if he is seen again.

Here's an idea- he's supposedly a student. I think he might be back.

Oh good. EVERY national news reported it.

UPDATE: Police have searched the area and report that there is no longer an immediate threat, said an SB Alert! text message. They have not caught the perpretrator, but classes are still in session.

University Police have received a report that an armed man is currently on campus.

The gunman was described as an African American male, about 25 years of age and wearing a black coat and black wool hat.

He reportedly fled from the Student Acitivities Center where he attempted a robbery in the direction of Harriman Hall.

According to WUSB reports, the Wang Center, Administration and the Humanities Buildings were locked down. Some students were allowed to leave buildings after word spread that the whole campus is not on lockdown.

It is unknown which other buildings have been locked down as a staff member at Administration would not release the information.

WUSB has also reported that the University Bookstore has been closed.

Inspector Robert Stafford from University Police has said that the report is currently unconfirmed and that police are still investigating.

Students are urged to follow emergency procedures and be cautious when moving around campus.

Through a series of text messages and voice messages sent through SB Alert!, some students were alerted of the danger; however, some students say that they received no such message from the University.

Local news agencies are also reporting on this situation, including Newsday and News 12.

Yi-Jin Yu contributed reporting.

LOLs. Yeah, of course.

Well....if I had family to contact I would. I sent a text to my dad (who I talk to a few times a year) thinking that a gunman would make him worry and he'd care. He sent me a text back saying : well just stay away from windows. oh...I think you owe me this money from ______. Just wanted you to know that if this is the last time I hear from you. I need it.

Been like that since birth so I expected it.

Hence, I don't contact family anymore. But the boyfriend and friends were alerted. Everything is OK for now....and I'm going to class now that the lockdown is over and the guy ran off campus.
