Not feeling the love, Rutgers.

So about half an hour ago, we get an email containing this:

Attention Rutgers Community:

The New Brunswick Police Department (NBPD) is investigating a report of shots fired which occurred at approximately 12:00 PM at the intersection of Jones Avenue and Seaman Street in the City of New Brunswick.

In this incident a local resident reported seeing a male who was standing in the intersection point and fire a handgun towards the direction of Commercial Avenue. The male then fled on foot into the City and away from University property. There are no known injuries as a result of this incident. Police patrols have been increased in the area.

The perpetrator was described as a black male wearing all dark clothing and a wool cap.

The New Brunswick Police Department asks that anyone with information, or who may have been in the area at the time, to contact the New Brunswick Police Department Detective Bureau at..."

Are we on lockdown? Nope. I mean gee, it's "off campus" and the person ran "away from University property" But let's take a nice look at where this dude was in comparison to where I am, shall we?

How comforting. That's the route I typically drive home. Right past that intersection to Commercial Ave. Methinks I'll be taking a different route this afternoon.

*return hugs* I shall do my best. Thankfully there was no other news after that so hopefully it was a false sighting.
