Central Connecticut State University students are being urged to stay indoors and away from windows, after an unidentified man on Nov. 4, was reportedly spotted carrying a gun and a knife on the school’s campus.

Police swarmed the campus of Central Connecticut State University when reports of an armed man was spotted walking around the school. The university has posted a disturbing message on their website begging student to “remain inside.” HollywoodLife.com spoke to the police in New Britain, Conn., and they told us that a “suspicious” person was spotted but they would not elaborate as to whether this person had been apprehended.

We reached out to University spokesman Mark McLaughlin and he tells HollywoodLife.com:

“Around 12 noon a report came in that there was a suspicious person with a weapon on campus. Campus police as well as state patrol gathered and began a search. At around 12:10-12:15, the campus sent out an alert for all to seek shelter, remain indoors until further notice.”

On the report that the suspected shooter “contained,” he said: “I have no information on that whatsoever and have been in constant contact with the police on the scene.”

The school posted this on their website:

Campus Emergency. Remain Inside buildings. Stay in place! Stay away from Windows. Police are on the Scene.

Plus, they also took to Twitter to write: “The university’s Twitter page sent out multiple messages throughout the day. This is not a drill, please stay indoors until the all clear.”

This is such a scary and developing story and HollywoodLife.com will keep you posted.
