Avoid UC Berkeley Campus

Community members should avoid the immediate UC Berkeley campus area, where campus police have implemented a shelter-in-place as they look for a person who “may want to harm specific people.”
Based on direct coordination on campus, this incident does not appear to require that community members take action beyond avoiding campus.
We are monitoring the situation closely. We will let you know if events should change.  
For campus-related alerts, sign up for UC Berkeley’s WarnMe system, which sends out alerts. Berkeley Police alerts are sent via Twitter and Nixle.
The previous Nixle that was sent in cooperation with the UC Berkeley Police:
Information about UC Berkeley’s Shelter in Place
A Campus-wide Emergency alert has been issued. Campus police are investigating a credible campus-wide threat. Please go inside and move away from doors and windows.
If you are not on campus, please stay away from the area. Facilities Services are locking buildings on campus.
All campus services are closed until further notice (e.g. libraries, dining, parking garages).
In-person classes are canceled through the remainder of the day. Instructors are encouraged to accommodate students and if possible record their remote classes to provide access to students at a later time.
Shelter in place. Emergency personnel are responding. We will send updates approximately every 15 minutes or sooner if needed.
Stay tuned to UC Berkeley WarnMe, KALX 90.7 FM, and for continued information.
