"i mean it's scary that it could possibly happen here with the open campus here at unlv and i do see some scary people so i do get scared." in cases of emergencies students and faculty receive an alert on their phones. similar to the alert students received during the summer.. when a false active shooter notification was sent out. police say it was an mistake...but a positive one. "it showed that the emergency notification system worked a number of people received and
enforcement responders in the area responded expeditiously." students i spoke with say they had no hesitation coming to school monday. "can't let that stuff stop you from doing life, if someone wants to get crazy can't let them stop you from doing what you want to do." "it's kind of one of those things you think will never happen to me, one in a million, won't happen to me, there are so many people on campus how could that happen to me." message police are trying to avoid. "i never feel 100% protected or a 100% ready simply because of the unknown, you never know what you might have to confront." and if you are unfortunate enough to have to go through an experience like the one at the ohio state university.. police have some tips. "lock yourself in place, you can, if you can escape from the building we ask you to do that, and as a last resort we ask you to fight for your life." now if you have a school email.. you are on the alert system....

"it's definitely in the back of your head now, you're on edge." on thanksgiving he heard commotion outside of his condo...but didn't think much of it.

police say he then took the girl around the building and sexually assaulted her. "we live right up here and apparently it was right around where we park our car so that is definitely a big concern.
