pray for the victims, kill the shooter.
“University of Oklahoma told students to shelter in place after a reported shooting on campus but the University says the report may have been a false alarm.
According to the University of Oklahoma, a shooting was reported at Gould Hall on campus. Students were urged to shelter in place.
Norman Police says OUPD requested their assistance to investigate the shooting around 11:15 AM Wednesday.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Cleveland County Sheriff Deputies are also on scene investigating.
At 12:05, the University issued a series of tweets that said ‘no evidence has been found of any shots being fired’ and ‘there are no injuries reported. OU also said normal campus operations have resumed except at Gould Hall where additional checking is being done.
University President David Boren is on scene and says both the Norman and the OU police department responded very quickly.”
Shelter in place? To heck with that.
If it had been 1/2 mile down the road; I wouldn’t be typing this.
This being a school of architecture, it could be anything from a sleep deprived shooter to a practical joke with a spud gun.
Twitter sucks. Anyone can make national news in about 2 minutes these days.
Used to take days or weeks to start a rumor.
Now they can spring up in seconds.
Then the media and the govt give them more fame by broadcasting every false alarm nationwide.
Heard on our local Tulsa radio station that there was no shooting...just a loud noise from a nearby construction site.
Yep, false alarm:
Oklahoma is not the smartest place for a shooter to go on a spree. Very nice carry laws there.
“Oklahoma is not the smartest place for a shooter to go on a spree. Very nice carry laws there.”
I’m sure that the University is a “Gun Free Zone” tho.
Dittos. If I hear that &^%##^&^%$$$ ‘Shelter in Place’ CRAP one more time I’m gonna puke. Just more pure liberal ‘the government will take care of you’ and/or ‘you are incapable of fending for yourself, we will rescue you, hang tight’ commie indoctrination brainwashing is all it is.
