Police treating lock down at Stevenson University as “false call”

Armed person reported at Stevenson University (WBFF)

BALTIMORE (WBFF) — Baltimore County Police say they are treating the lock down of Stevenson University’s Greenspring Campus as a possible false call.

Police say a transmission was sent over a university radio that “a person was seen walking with eight AK-47s.” Officials do not know where the radio is or who made the transmission at this time.

Police say there was never a report of a person on the campus, only the radio transmission.

Police are canvassing the campus as a precaution, but they are treating the incident as a possible false call.

People on campus are still being advised to shelter in place. School officials sent the following update at around 11:30 a.m.:

“Please continue to remain sheltered in place. The Baltimore County Police are on site investigating. No armed individual has been sighted, no shots have been fired, and no one has been injured, but the Police need to conclude their investigation before the all clear can been given.”
