"You yell ‘gun' on a college campus and you're going to get some police," said campus Police Chief Jimmy Williamson. He said as many as 20 patrolman and detectives, some toting rifles, rushed to the Dean Rusk Center -- part of the law school -- after someone reported seeing a gunman there.
It turns out that people thought they'd seen a former graduate student who allegedly threatened a professor, Williamson said. The alleged threat is being investigated, added the chief. He will not identify the individual unless charges are filed, possibly Friday.
