CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WKRN) – An all-clear has been given at University of Tennessee Chattanooga Wednesday afternoon.
Police responded to the campus after receiving information that there was a man reportedly wearing a tactical style vest and carrying a rifle.
The university sent out an alert to students, notifying of them of the incident.
Police have since determined a Chattanooga police officer was getting off his shift and was equipped with his tactical gear when he was spotted by someone, causing alarm.
“It’s a whole lot better to investigate something and find out that nothing has actually occurred. We want people to get involved and to contact us,” a police officer said.
The campus has asked professors to use their discretion on holding classes the rest of the day.
