Armed Intruder On USF Campus

USF_2013TAMPA — Police have evacuated buildings at the University of South Florida’s health complex, searching for a man they said was spotted carrying a gun on campus.

Several hundred students, faculty and staff members work in the health complex, which includes the USF College of Nursing and teaching hospitals, authorities said.

Kevin Kip, a professor at the college of nursing, said he and his coworkers received a text alert from university officials telling them to stay indoors.

“We were told to lock ourselves in our offices,” said Kip, who has been evacuated from the building.

Police entered the building with guns drawn and searched room-to-room, Kip said.
