Cambridge Police said the scene was clear after MIT sent out an alert this morning about a possible person with a rifle on campus. This is the statement the school released:
“This morning information was received by Cambridge Police that there was a person with a long rifle and body armor in the Main Group Building of MIT. Multiple law enforcement agencies have responded, stay indoors and shelter in place and report suspicious activity to the campus police dispatch dial 100. More updates to follow on emergency.mit.net.”
Cambridge Police later tweeted that the scene was clear and the call was “unfounded”.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
