There was a moment of terror at the University of Central Florida when students were told to take cover. Without any detailed information, everybody in the college premise was told to stay safe and not roam in open. It is believed that a man with gun is on the loose and everybody was told to hide in the nearest buildings and stay away from the windows.
How many casualties have happened?
As of now, there have been no proper reports of what happened as the officials are on the way. Once they arrive at the college, the whole situation will be analyzed and we will get to know all the information. It may be the case that they are hiding any death news to avoid the panicking among the young students.
I’m outside UCF Tower 1. Students tell me only the second floor was evacuated. Police say they’ve identified student who was reported to have entered the building with a weapon in his waistband. #ucf #orlando pic.twitter.com/PX0czWD0rf
