AU Lockdown All Clear

american universityAn all clear was issued about an hour ago in the American University lockdown.  D.C. police released information that the gunman was in fact an off-duty police officer with a permitted weapon.

A university spokesperson said that students are encouraged to say something if they notice something, which was the case with the alleged gunman on the campus shuttle. “Everyone is safe,” added Assistant Vice President of Communication Camille Lepre.

The university was locked down for about two hours Wednesday night after reports of a man on campus with a gun. The school issued tweets to “shelter in place” and to identify two suspects, pictured on the shuttle.
