Conn. Univ. Reports Possible Gunman, One in Custody
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The University of New Haven in Connecticut says a suspect is in custody following a report of a man near campus with what appeared to be a rifle.
The university said Tuesday on Twitter that people should continue to shelter in place.
No further information was immediately available. Messages left with the public affairs office for the university in West Haven and West Haven police were not immediately returned.
The university enrolls about 6,400 students. The majority of its 4,600 undergraduates live in university housing.
Several nearby public schools also put out shelter-in-place orders as a precaution.
