Active Shooter

The best possible scenario is to intervene by notifying someone before a person turns violent. If you see warning signs, do not hesitate to share your concerns with proper authorities. Response to an active shooter requires individual decision making. The emergency notification from the campus will provide the last known location of the threat, but the shooter might have moved. In most cases, the best action is to barricade.

Warning signs can be found in the Violence Prevention section of the Personal Safety page. 

For sharing concerns or reporting suspicious activity, refer to the Report Suspicious Activity list above.
