University officials said they were anonymously contacted regarding a potential shooter on campus and called the police. The Administration Building was then evacuated as investigators conducted sweeps of all campus buildings, school officials said.

Police shut down 6th Street from Fairmount Street, Northwest to College Street, Northwest and Howard Place from Georgia Avenue to 4th Street while the campuswide search took place.
