The "active shooter" reporters appear to be a misunderstanding.
Police say the reports of an active shooter are unfounded. Teenagers were popping balloons at Mason Hall on State Street. https://t.co/XDBk8yvpAa— Adam Herbets (@AdamHerbets) March 16, 2019
UM sent another campus alert. There appears to be no "active threat." They're encouraging people to stay away from Mason Hall as they continue to investigate.
