VIOLENT CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR Response to potentially violent criminal behavior: If you see or know that a person has a firearm or weapon on campus, or if you hear shots fired on campus, or if you witness an armed person shooting people, protect yourself first—move to a safe location. As soon as possible, call the police by dialing 911 or 205-652-3602 if available and safe. Tell the dispatcher your name, location, phone and describe the situation you are reporting: who, what, when, where, how and why (if known). Is anyone hurt or injured? If possible, alert others in the immediate area about the current situation.
