All done now.


Back to normal around 3. Armed robbery on campus, heard tell they spotted him well away from us, so we were told to stand down.

Interesting process, though - we were told to stay indoors, all doors were locked, and communication was by voicemail and e-mail. All in all I hear the response was timely, positive and by the book.

I'm glad you guys had a timely and efficient response. Any campus that can't handle that, at this point, is risking lives.

We had a gang shooting just off our campus within the past few days, and it appears they were able to keep all the nearby people indoors and informed until they were sure the coast was clear.

Exactly. About an hour afterwards someone said they'd caught the guy, and someone else said, "Didn't the Virginia Tech shooter come back?"

We stayed indoors until we were told it was definitely all clear.

Glad to hear that everything turned out ok, and that the school responded promptly. I know much too well how unnerving that situation can be. :(

I know. At one point an e-mail went out saying they think they caught the guy on the other side of town, and a few people here were saying they didn't understand why that didn't put an end to the lockdown, and Quincy said, "Didn't the Virginia Tech guy come back?" Everybody pretty much just shut up and waited it out at that point.

Were really actually learned. That's a good thing. What a blessing. I wish I felt that good about the schools areound here...
