The Daily Roundup – I can’t believe all this stuff is happening at the same time Edition

30 Apr

Here we go. Hold on

Police responded to McCollum Hall on the KU campus today after reports of a man with a gun. For a time there was a large police presence and police officers with semi-automatic weapons. The entire building was searched from the bottom up but no weapon or gunman was found.

It is now believed that the suspect has left campus. There are reports that a Blue Chevrolet is associated with the incident.

Primary stories:

From The Lawrence Journal-World.

From The University Daily Kansan (with a great story, great details).

From The Kansas City Star.

Supplemental stories:

The Kansan has a great photo gallery

LJWorld has a picture of what the KU homepage looked like during the incident. It now looks completely normal, there’s no mention of the incident on the main homepage.

The Star has a timeline written by a Star intern on the scene who is also a KU student.

The other big KU news today that got buried because of the gun issue was that two more KU Athletics employees resigned in the wake of the basketball ticket scandal.

From LJWorld.

From The Kansan.

Yesterday, the entire KU network crashed, leaving campus without internet, printers, ethernet, etc. for much of the day. Further, KU’s web services also crashed so KU resources couldn’t be accessed from an outside connection.

The Kansan reported on the problem and how it impacted students.

Oh, yeah, there’s also a big oil spill.

That’s The Daily Roundup. Have a great evening.
