Yeah i just got a call,text, and an email from UA. I pray everyone is ok...
I just got the call from the university, I hope to God nobody is hurt. I don't know how I feel about going to class tomorrow...
What did they say exactly?
Shots fired on the Strip. Officers on scene. One suspect in custody. Take necessary precautions.
Here is a copy and paste from the email, the call from the university said the same thing:
"Shots fired on the Strip. Officers on scene. One suspect in custody. Take necessary precautions."
I hate it when people assume and do what I'm doin now but it struck me odd earlier. Vogler tweeted "there will be a fight tonight #pickedthewrongnight" . Probably has absolutely nothing to do ith this, but still, if a player was involved....

Apparently DeAndrew White wasnt shot. Here is the latest update.
Situation cleared. Both suspects in custody. No gunshot injuries. Follow up investigations continue.
I just got another message that said the situation was clear, they have two suspects in custody, and there were no gunshot injuries.
I don't know if that part is true about no injuries, there are pics on twitter that look like there were injuries. Hope I'm wrong.
Police said " no gun related injuries ". Im sure there were injuries of other sorts

Bad injuries, but nobody was shot. Two guys were knocked out in the street. It started as a fight in front of or in Egans bar.
Gang - I just got back from the scene and someone was definitely hurt. Witnesses say that two people went to the hospital.
There's a 6-inch blood stain on the road in front of Egan's from one person. Another person was apparently on the ground but not bleeding across the street in front of Houndstooth.
We'll let you know as soon as we have something concrete.

I've taken the liberty of changing the name of the thread to "incident," although the Crimson White is reporting that University Relations sent out two alerts:
2:47 a.m.: “Shots fired on the Strip. Officers on scene. One suspect in custody. Take necessary precautions."
3:47 a.m.: “Situation cleared. Both suspects in custody. No gunshot injuries. Follow up investigations continue.”

Also, no one I talked with on the Strip said they heard a gun.
The blood stain that I saw almost certainly would have been a lot bigger had someone been shot.
CW has some photos, and a pretty good shot of the guy being taken into custody: http://cw.ua.edu/2012/04/19/strip-crime-scene/
