New Haven police say they believe that the report of a shooter on his way to Yale University’s campus Monday morning was a “hoax,” reports CBS affiliate WFSB.
Around 9:30 a.m., police say they received an anonymous call from someone claiming his roommate was headed to Yale with a long gun. The university went into lockdown mode, telling students and faculty to stay inside as police searched the area.
Police are trying to track down the man who called police from a payphone. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is listening to the phone call and using voice recognition equipment to try to determine who the caller is.
New Haven Police Chief Dean Esserman said that once the man is located, he will be arrested.
“This is not been a time where we can be relaxed when there is a report of a gun said this was not a test,” Esserman said.

Well, duh! Of course it was all a hoax. Every gun incident that’s exaggerated and overblown by the MSM is a hoax. A false flag hoax. Tell me something I don’t know.
Anna Nicole Smith really DID marry for love.

Well, what can I say? You learn something new everyday. lol
I figured that was something you don’t already know.
Of course, it’s pure b.s., but it sounded good.
