A SHELTER-in-Place warning was issued at a California university because students were told to “stay away from doors and windows.”
The startling warning was issued campus-wide at the University of California, Berkeley, just before 10 a.m. Thursday.
The emergency alert was issued as campus police are investigating a credible campus-wide threat, the UC Police Department said.
“Please go inside and move away from doors and windows. If you are not on campus, please stay clear of the area,” UCPD said in a statement.
Quickly dousing reports of active shooters circulating on social media, the UCPD said officials were looking for an individual “who may wish to harm certain individuals.”
The threat to the university led to a soft lockdown at neighboring Emerson Elementary School.
The elementary school confirmed to partners in an email that there was no threat to staff or students.
