There were assertions a gunman was loose in Pace University at 41 Park Row.
Carly Wakefield wrote on Tizzy: “If you’re in 41 park row or pace plaza get out asap there’s an alleged shooter in the followers”
Students said they had been led out of their classrooms by police political appointees and the area was locked off.
Timothy Nolan tweeted: «So @NYPDnews just renounced everyone out of @PaceUniversity. Anyone know what’s up?”
And Nico Amatullo divulged: “There’s a man with a gun at Pace University, large police presence.”
Velocity University later announced the incident had been a false alarm.
The university translated: “There was police activity at One Pace Plaza. It was a false alarm.
“There were no maltreatments and everyone is safe.”
