UConn Spokesperson Stephanie Reitz told News 8 a student in Oak Hall overheard a conversation that concerned him so he reported it. Police searched the building and found nothing of concern. Classes starting before 6 p.m. were canceled, but all classes starting at 6 p.m. and later will still take place. No other buildings were affected.
The “shelter in place” has been canceled. Police say they will remain in the area to answer any questions, but they say this incident was a misunderstanding and no one was in danger.
