MIT Active Shooter

Post by KentsOkay » Thu Apr 18, 2013 10:27 pm

Looks like there is or was an active shooter situation on MIT campus.

Speaking from personal experience, MIT is one of the more pro-gun school campuses I've been on (very active shooting clubs etc).I sincerely hope none of the club members are involved in a negative way, I know a few of them well :(

It's a jungle out there.

MIT police officer hit by gunfire


CAMBRIDGE -- An MIT police officer suffered life-threatening injuries Thursday night, and police were conducting a manhunt for the gunman across the school campus and on the Red Line in Cambridge, according to authorities.

MIT and Cambridge police responded to a report of shots fired about 10:30 p.m. Thursday near Main and Vassar streets, said State Police spokesman Dave Procopio.

According to a tweet from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “there is a report of an active shooter in the vicinity” of Building 32, the renowned Stata Building.

Police officers and canine units swarmed the campus, and a big swath of Vassar Street was blocked.

Thoughts and prayers for all involved, and that the responding officers had hard armor, rifles, and tourniquets.

I know that sidewalk. A hold up at the local 7-11 may be involved, a 7-11 I have bought many late night snacks at.

Weapon recovered, suspect still at large. My guess is it was related to the 7-11 robbery.

I think they said something about description being similar to the bombing suspects.

Are they saying "stolen SUV from state police". Like the bad guys stole a cop car?

Geebus. Second officer down, automatic gun fire and hand grenades.

God help those officers. I'm listening to the radio traffic.

Setting up a cordon, minimum safe distance... Sounds like fucking Iraq.

Perimeter is being setup. Package in roadway, EOD enroute. I'm glad I'm not working this call. Officers being advised to power down all cell phones :shock:.

500 rounds of wolf says that they have plenty of formers on their dream teams. That, or they get trained by formers. LEO is the most popular job for formers.

Stumbled upon this thread. Praying for the officers. Hard. And I'm not a religious man.
