Universities are a place where students are working hard to earn their degree. The promise for a better life all lies in their hard work and studies. Students should focus on school work, not worry about gunshots. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
On April 2, 2014 at Kent State University, a student shot a gun outside of Bowman Hall where students were having class. When the gunshots were heard, the staff and students responded to these shots using ALICE strategies and performing an enhanced lockdown for hours until it was announced that the threat had been apprehended. No one was injured, and the suspect was arrested. These students were responded using their training and that led to positive outcomes.
