Fake Weapons Cause Real Scare
University of Texas police--and the rest of the campus, for that matter--are breathing a little easier this evening.
UTPD issued a safety alert about 6:25 p.m., saying that a man had been seen between 5:30 & 6:00 near the Rec Sports Building on San Jacinto Blvd., carrying what were believed to be two shotguns.
Police caught up with the man a few moments later. The weapons he was carrying were replicas. Authorities have canceled the safety alert.
