Active Shooter

A False Report of an Active Shooter Raises Fears on a Californian Campus

In California, a student recently offered his belt to his professor to help lock a door. The professor accepted the belt, and the door was secured shut. Other students decided to pitch in by sliding their desks over to the door to form a massive barricade. All of this was done out of the belief an active shooter was on the USC campus. However, it turns out there was no shooter at all. Instead, it is believed an unnamed professor incorrectly informed her students there was an active shooter roaming the campus. Through electronic communication, the false news quickly spread.
