TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Towson University officials have given an all-clear after the school’s library and media center were evacuated after a man called school police and said he was in the library with a gun.
University spokesman Ray Feldmann said by phone that the man called the university police communications center about 6:30 p.m. Monday. Feldmann says the man said he was in Cook Library and armed with a gun.
Police were talking with the man when the conversation stopped, Feldmann says. The library and adjoining media center were evacuated; everyone made it out safely, the spokesman says.
University and Baltimore County Police conducted a floor-by-floor sweep of the 5-story library. The university issued an all-clear just before 8 p.m. and said no incidents occurred.
