WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) — Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire on Friday evening called off a shooting alert after police found no traces of shooting in all reported locations.
“The Hanover Police have responded to all related reports in the area and found nothing to indicate shots occurred in those locations,” the university said on its website, adding that the school is “lifting the shelter in place.”
In an earlier alert, the school cited police as saying a non-Dartmouth student was shot at a building on campus, telling students to stay in shelter as the shooter was believed to be at large.
Lax gun control has been threatening social security in the United States. A series of shootings occurred in past several days.
On Friday, a man killed himself after shooting at least five people at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida. On Monday morning, a student died after being shot at a high school in North Carolina.
On Sunday, a gunman opened fire inside a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, killing at least 11 people and injuring six others. The gunman was charged with dozens of counts, including hate crimes.
