  1. Any word on shots fired around Madison/Olive St? We were at work and heard two shots outside, followed a few minutes later by two screaming cop cars turning on to Olive. This was around 4.

  2. 3 patrol cars at 27th and Marion, one traveling slowing along 26th, canine unit investigating. Apparently a strong arm robbery at gun point on the street sometime before 8 PM.

  3. This message to members of the University community is being sent in the interest of public safety and in compliance with federal law requiring timely warning notification of crimes committed on or near campus.
