I’ve been obsessed with Captain America and floral art for a while now, so when I saw some red, white and blue fake flowers at work I immediately thought of a floral shield. I made this for my wall but it ended up also being a prop for my halloween costume last year. It measures about a foot in diameter.
On Monday, Colgate University ordered a lockdown after reports of an “active shooter” on campus, theRootreported. The “active shooter,” however, was a black student using a glue gun for a class project.
The lockdown began when a student at the upstate New York college called campus safety to report seeing a black man holding what looked like a gun. Soon after, students at the Coop — a student center — were told to leave the building due to a “dangerous situation.”
After about a four-hour lockdown, university officials released a statement to the Colgate community that campus safety confirmed the “active shooter” suspect was, in fact, a student using a glue gun.
