A person with a gun was reported on campus at the Rochester Institute of Technology on Friday, and students were ordered to stay indoors, the university said.
"Shelter in place and stay indoors. Person allegedly with rifle spotted outside Kate Gleason residence hall," the university said on its website. The university advised people in the area of the residence hall to stay indoors until further notice.
There were no reports of shots fired or injuries, FOX News Channel reported. Police were investigating.

Being locked down isn’t much fun.
Update, channel 13 reporting it was an umbrella, not a rifle. Whew.
Expect a ban on black umbrellas soon.
The ban on black trenchcoats worked so well (Columbine)
Hmmmm, looks like all the law-abiding students had one option (before we discovered it was umbrella-gate)...hide in the corner like a quota baby president.
Now, if they were packin’......
Graduated from RIT......
Have a campus for the deaf (NTID) at RIT
Hope nothing to this
Was it a semi-automatic assault umbrella?
Yep....I’m bettin’ it was one of those push-button-open thingies.
Duck and cower...
I’m still smelling a rat.
Some sort of psy-op to create a number of real and perceived shooting incidents prior to the election. A domestic version of Fast and Furious if you will.
This is near me....Too funny...except my nephew went there and he is into guns big time...and sometimes he’s stupid.
Of course, those of us who are old enough remember this:
My wife went to the gun range with her church women’s group. Some of the gals that went were scared stiff - typical hoplophobes.
One asked my wife, “What if someone comes in and shoots the place up?”
My wife laughed at her and said, “Are you kidding? No one ever shoots up a gun range or a gun show - everyone is armed!”
But... people do shoot up schools from time to time...
RIT? No women are at risk, so that’s good.
Oh yes it is.
Freakin' gunphobic New York. I am SO GLAD I shed that state.
Pump-action umbrellas are far more deadly.
Umbrella, rifle. Very similar items. Easy to mistake one for the other. Especially if edumakated by the NEA and MSM.
What’s up with this recent spate of whack jobs running around schools and campuses?
You mean the professors?
The antigun and zero tolerance means anyone with a fake gun is going to trigger a much ado about nothing lockdown for any thing going about.
This is another act of covering up administrative incompetence and budget issues, lock downs for no reasons.
Don’t forget the collapsible stock umbrella. And yes, there is still an “assault weapon” ban here behind enemy lines in NY.

I think I am acquainted with your close friend: Miss Urethra Monsoon.
Actually, it looks more like her sister, Tanya Hyde.
Just explaining why a collapsible stock umbrella might be illegal here. Joke.
Haven’t your heard..you can poke an eye out with those things.
She is in disguise but I think I recognize the well known chef Barbie Flay.
