MIT used to have a bridge that was known as a common place of suicide. Genius and insanity aren't far apart.

Heard it was one gunshot, officer down and the person who shot him took his gun. They don't know who he is or what he looks like

Gunshots were heard near a building on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, the school said on its website on Thursday.
The shots "were reported near Building 32 ... which is currently surrounded by responding agencies," according to a statement on the MIT website for emergency information.
Representatives for local police agencies could not immediately be reached for comment.
From Reuters. Has the whole world gone insane?!

Not going to be a major incident. Although I bet someone will try to exploit it for gun control

I live in the Dorchester section of Boston, which within this particular area of the city there are some extremely bad parts, I live in a rather nice one near the water though.

There are shootings in Boston weekly, yet this one makes headlines because it was at a place people have heard of, MIT. And for he record MIT is in Cambridge, not Boston.

Granted a police officer was shot in this case rather than a gang banger, but even still this is going to turn into a national story as the media will try to ride the coattails of the tragedy that was the bombing.

My thoughts are with the officer and their safe recovery.

Sounds like a criminal vs cop scenario which happened to be on MIT's campus. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the school.

Crazy day. My entire school was evacuated for a bomb scare.
