U Of Miami Student With Toy Guns Apprehended

The University of Miami was put on lockdown last night after students reported seeing a man with guns on campus.

The man, a film major at the school, was neither armed nor dangerous. The guns were fake; he was using them for a class project.

Still, students were pleased by the university's response to the non-crisis, even though some students were surprised at being instructed to stay indoors and witnessing police with assault rifles on campus. The Miami Hurricane has more:

"I see why, with some incidents like the Virginia Tech shooting, such a response would be called for. It's good they were ready just in case, but they probably caused more panic than anything else," said Michael Alegro, a junior majoring in accounting.
