University of Massachusetts Boston Reports Possible Threat
We are receiving news reports now of a possible threat on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Boston.
MetroSource News says the college is urging people within the campus’ McCormack Building to stand down because of the possibility of a person with a firearm on campus.
Massachusetts State Police say the report, which was called in as a phone tip to the Boston Globe, was false.
The UMass Boston Twitter feed has not yet been updated and is still reporting the threat at this time:
UMass Boston Alert: Evacuate McCormack Building. Possible person with a firearm. Avoid area. Officials are on scene.
