University of Miami Shooting Coral Gables Campus, Suspects Caught
The University of Miami was on lockdown today at the Coral Gables Campus, due to at least two people firing a BB Gun nearby. The lockdown is now over and the the suspects have been caught.
"The campus is safe and secure and has been re-opened," said UM officials in advisory posted on its Web site only minutes ago.
The lockdown occured at 2:42pm local time, and it advised all students and faculty to go indoors and remain there, even though this seemed like a extreme measure to some students. After students found out it was a BB Gun they were relieved however. None of the students reported that they were anxious during the lockdown.
ordan Caruso, an 18-year-old freshman at UM, first got a text from his brother, who is also a student, about a shooter on campus at 2:44 p.m. and three minutes later got a text message form the University saying a BB gun was involved in the incident.
