LOL: Man with a gun MAY be en-route to UTA campus - all campus activities cancelledSubmitted by xcfreek58 on Fri, 06/21/2013 - 11:14
This was from June 19, 2013. There was an unconfirmed report by the Dallas PD that a man MAY have been en-route to the University of Texas - Arlington campus at 4:28 am. As a result, all operations were cancelled. Campus activities were re-opened later that day, but the point still remains.
A man traveling with a gun! Everybody stay inside! Shut down all operations!
I must say that I found this to be a bit comical.
