Possible first sighting of armed man

Below is the text of an e-mail sent to the Triangle list at 12:57 a.m. by a student who might have been the first to report the possibility of an armed man on campus.

Subject: IMPORTANT FACTS in re security message

[We] were walking to the Wa around 11:30. We spotted an individual carrying a gun (looked like an AK-47) and couldn't tell if it was fake or not. So I called Public Safety and reported it and gave them a report, and Borough Police also talked to us. That was at 11:30 and we haven't heard anything else from them.

So that's ~first hand what's going on, but like I said, a sighting at 12:40 is not our sighting.
