    My friend just alerted me of this as well. He has a direct line of contact with a girl on campus there in DC. She told him that there is indeed a shooter on campus.

    Joe, this is information we got from someone who received the text message directly. There is no need to be verbally abusive and a bully by calling us “idiots.” We’re reporting from a direct eyewitness.

    Let’s see if you can post “We are idiots and made a big mistake” as fast as you put up your original post.

    Tate, she got four texts and confirms that at least one said “shooter.” We are working on a follow up.

    Source confirms text received says “shooter.”

    Tate, I am reporting directly from a student who said there was a shooter on campus.

      I am sorry to say that your source is wrong. The text says “man with gun.”

    Please do not jump to conclusions with that inaccurate headline. A man with a gun was reported a few minutes ago. Nothing is confirmed, let alone actual shooting.
