CCSU Freshman Jacob Stacy called his father, Michael Stacy from our sister station WRCH, and he gave a firsthand account of the campus lockdown as it happened.
According to Stacy, while he was eating lunch he and a friend saw police officers walking into James Hall with weapons drawn. “We looked out the window, and we saw the cops running into this dorm with M-16s and M-9 pistols.”
Stacy also recalled that the police presence was a mix of campus, New Britain and State Police, as well as ongoing messages on campus speaker systems and updates on CCSU’s Twitter feed.
