    Crazy guy on campus

    So I get a text about 2 minutes ago saying there's some crazy guy running around the University of South Florida (where I currently am sitting) with a gun. No further details.

    Man, sure am glad my class mates are safe, what with me being unarmed and all...

    I hope nothing bad comes out of it. Stay safe and keep your head down.

    I would be talking to the admin as soon as possible about CC on campus. Also writing to my senators and reps.

    Head down?
    Nope head up, eyes open and stay aware of what is going on around you. Definately a good time for heightened SA.

    Just an update guys. I am safe and off campus. The university police have yet to issue any updates - just the original alert. Thanks for all the concern...I'll let you know if I hear anything.

    UP issuing alerts....NOPE.

    ABC has picked up on it though
    -----------------------------------
    TAMPA, FL -- The University of South Florida has issued a text message warning students to stay away from the northeast side of campus.

    The alert was issued after police received several reports that there was an armed man on campus.

    Kylie Blahut, who was one of the people who reported the man to police, said the gunman was "walking casually with the gun by his side" in the area of the Greek Village.

    The man has been described as a white male, 18-20 years old. He is wearing a "Go Greek" t-shirt and blue jeans.

    Police have not have not located the man yet.

    Stay with ABC Action News for the latest.

    I agree with Rugergirl, it was meant as a friendly warning, I guess not actual advice.

    A buddy of mine goes there. I hope he didn't go on campus forgetting that he was carrying and get made.

    Don't forget that "man with a gun" calls don't always mean that there is a psycho with a gun ready to use it.

    I got my degree from USF. As far as I can tell no actual real crime was even committed. Carrying a gun on campus is against the law, but that doesn't make it wrong.

    After an "extensive" search they have called off and say everything is back to normal. They say he was walking around carrying it - and while i COMPLETELY disagree with the law, if you do not follow it, you are by definition....a criminal.

    Brilliant, have the students run to the Southwest side of the campus, probably where the 'crazied gunman' went...
