AKRON, Ohio – Akron police have evacuated and closed the University of Akron Polsky Building to investigate a report of a person inside with a weapon.
On Facebook, a student in the building posted the following comment to our page at 6:26 p.m.:
I was in a sign language class just a few minutes ago. Someone came into class late and informed us about the police outside guarding the elevators with their weapons drawn. Our wonderful teacher went to check out what was going on. She came in and told us that we needed to leave the building. I am save now at my home.
At 6:29 p.m., UAPD reported they had secured the building and there found “nothing out of the ordinary.”
