At the college that I attend in South Florida, there had recently been 2 “shooter” incidents on the same campus within the past three months. I put shooter in quotation marks because there were no shots fired, but only threats.
For safety alerts, the school sends out mass texts and calls to all students to notify them to seek a safe area on campus or not to come at all if off campus. In the most recent incident, which happened in the afternoon, I did not receive the text message until later that night at around 11:30 pm; effective, huh?
In one of the incidents between three young men, who got into a fight about a cell phone, one of them flashed a gun but did not shoot it. In the other incident, a student made a threat about having a gun but was not actually in possession of it on campus; instead it was legally locked away in their car.
