So, what exactly happened on the WT campus on Wednesday?

Social Media Posts, Rumors, And Law Enforcement Response

Going off of posts to social media made by the WT University Police Department, there were "threatening comments" being made by a student towards other students. They were bad enough that they warranted a response by law enforcement, who was prepared for an active shooter.

According to the WT University Police Department's post on social media, there were rumors circulating via social media that there was an active shooter attacking the campus.

Fortunately, that was not the case. Law enforcement then began tracking down the individual who made the threats.

They Tracked The Suspect Down In Tulia

The post continues that after investigating it was determined that a terroristic threat had been made, and the suspect was eventually apprehended in Tulia by the Tulia PD.

What is interesting is going back through the series of events on the WT University Police Department's Facebook page and reading the comments. There are those who are incredibly appreciative of the University Police Department. Others, while the series of events were transpiring, were more concerned and critical.

The University Police Department did mention that they do take all threats, and rumors of threats, seriously. Maybe, just so everyone from faculty to students are on the same page, this event will lead to discussions and the formation of even better procedures and policies in the future; in case something like this were to happen again.
