American University ‘gunman’ turns out to be cop
WASHINGTON – Call it knee-jerk panic or an abundance of caution.
After an eyewitness reported a man with a gun on campus at American University, authorities put the Washington college on lockdown as officers swarmed out to look for him.
In the end, no shots were fired, no crime committed. No one was hurt.
The man turned out to be an off-duty officer from the Metropolitan Police Department.
He was sitting on the bus with a woman he knew — a student at the university.
