This afternoon, there was an accidental activation of an “active shooter” alert in the Miller Center. There is no incident taking place in the building. The message was distributed unintentionally one time, according to University officials.

The alert was distributed in the building over the building’s indoor alert system. Occupants heard a message declaring there was an active shooter in the building.

We apologize for the false alarm and are investigating what occurred to cause the indoor alert to be accidentally issued in the building.
