There was heavy police activity Wednesday at the Broward College campus in Davie, leading to a lockdown at nearby Nova Southeastern University.
However, officials are not reporting any injuries, refuting unfounded rumors spread on social media regarding an active shooter on campus.
“Davie Fire Rescue units responded and cleared the location after it was determined it was a false call and there were no injuries at this location,” Fire Marshal Robert Taylor, of Davie Fire Rescue, told Local 10 News.
“Due to an elevated police presence at Broward College’s Davie Campus, NSU’s University School, out of abundance of caution, has issued its code yellow security protocol and is operating under those conditions,” Nova Southeastern University spokesman Joe Donzelli said in a statement. “NSU’s main campus is currently under normal operations. All students, faculty and staff are safe.”
