Catholic University Students Shelter in Place a 2nd Time

by Associated Press

WASHINGTON ― Catholic University of America students again were warned to shelter in place and police say a suspicious person was located before the shelter-in-place order was lifted.

An initial notice on the school’s website Tuesday evening said city police and university public safety officers were on campus in response to a “possible armed suspect.”

Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Officer Sean Hickman later said police weren’t actually searching for an armed suspect but had located a “suspicious person.” He declined to identify the person or elaborate.

The school website says the person wasn’t the same from Monday’s incident.

A university official said a custodial worker reported Monday night being approached by a man with a weapon demanding the location of the administration building. The campus was deemed safe about 3 a.m. Tuesday.
