ECU Conducts Drill Simulating On-Campus Gunman

East Carolina University is conducting a drill that simulates a gunman on campus so the school can evaluate its ability to cope with a shooter.

The exercise began Tuesday morning on the campus near the health sciences building, East Carolina Heart Institute and the Brody School of Medicine. ECU police, the Greenville Police Department, the Pitt County Sheriff's Office and Greenville Fire-Rescue are participating, along with ECU officials.

The school says students, faculty, staff and visitors should avoid some areas until 2 p.m. Tuesday. Those areas are: the health sciences building and parking lot to the north; the Laupus Library parking lot; and the overflow parking south of health sciences.
