A little excitment on 324 Post

Justin Fenton and Peter Hermann report:
So many police officers are at Hopkins at this hour that the department had to call in officers from other districts and detective units to help answer other 911 calls in the Eastern District. One plainclothes officer reported being out in his personal car, and he warned his dispatcher he was patrolling "with no lights, no sirens, no nothing."
Needless to say, usually shootings in the Eastern don't get such a massive response.

Update: I just heard on the radio that the gunman was shot and killed (apparently self-inflicted). Hopefully Baker Shift will get home on time!

It is crazy in Baltimore-yesterday Michaela's school was on lock down at dismissal due to a gun fight and shooting at Loch Raven and Northern Prkwy. and today emergency text alert about Hopkins-I am at the Glen Burnie Campus-cannot wait to get out of this city!!! One more year to go and the mountains are looking better and better!
