An alert has been issued by Indiana University after authorities got reports of an armed person near the University’s Bloomington campus.
On Friday morning, the University website flashed the following alert; “A subject with a handgun has been reported close to the Bloomington campus near 12th and Indiana at the Village Pantry. If you are on campus, trust your instincts and take safe shelter in the nearest available room. Lock the door if possible. Remain in place until the police or a campus administrator known to you gives the ALL CLEAR. Call 911 if you have information about the armed person. If you are not on campus, stay away. Follow instructions from university officials or local authorities.”
A second alert was posted to their website later which said, “IU Bloomington Update: Investigation is on-going. Threat is no longer imminent. Resume normal routine but remain vigilant. Call 911 with additional information. See emergency.iu.edu for updates.”
