University of Michigan Upgrades Security After March’s False Active Shooter Report

The University of Michigan is taking steps to secure a building after reports of an active shooter created campus-wide panic earlier this year.

An active shooter alert was sent out in March following confusion at an on-campus gathering.

During a vigil for the victims in the New Zealand mosque shooting, a sorority was holding an event which included balloon popping.

This led to unconfirmed reports of an active shooter near Mason Hall.

The University of Michigan says it is installing locks on all classrooms and lab doors inside the hall.

The school says this will help faculty, staff, and students, lock down the building faster in case of an emergency.

The project will also help the university learn what types of locks will be needed in some of the school’s more historic buildings.
