    2nd Warning. You would be wise to avoid the FAMU campus all the time. Sad but true.

      Jim, how about you stay inside your home where it is safe, or live in a dungeon. Crime is every where and not just on FAMU campus...i.e. robberies on FSU campus recently, robberies in the city, crime in the state, crime in the U.S., crime in the world. "It would be wise to avoid" being targeted and use precaution where ever you are in this world. "Sad but true".

      Wow really?..I'm a FAMU GRAD..and your statement is ignorant...and from the looks of it, its an actual reflection of YOU.. DID YOU EVEN READ THE ARTICLE? CAN YOU READ AT ALL? It said FAMU PD sent a text to law inforcement to warn them of shots fired....not that there were shots fired on campus...there are a lot of local people live around the schools. All of them, its sad that ignorant people have to make assumptions like yours based on location...or does your assumptions stem from something more deep rooted??? Perhaps? " Sad but TRUE"

    Typical!

    To: Bill Proctor Why are these young men shooting guns at folks? You should be worried about setting an example for our youth rather than criticizing hard working Hispanic people that have inhabited our state since 1539. Look at the jail population in Leon. African American, Caucasian, and very few Hispanics ( because they work instead of seek entitlements and crime to earn a living.

      To Jose: why don't you and all the other "hard working ILLEGAL hispanics" go back to your own country. Then you don't have to worry about the jail population in our country and can worry about the jail population in your own country...fair. Take your anchor babies with you...thanks much.

        To TIR: Why don't you and all the other non working legal non-producers go back to your own country. Then you don't have to worry about the working population in our country and can worry about the corruption and disease in your own country...fair. Take your illegitimate babies with you...thanks much.

          You are obviously a fan of TIR, but your following me and waiting with bated breath for me is kind of stalker like. You really need to seek help.

        Following you?? Not hardly! The majority of your posts stand out because of the overt racism in them. Someone calls your hand and you get your feelings hurt. Consider yourself ignored. Enjoy your misery.

    At FAMU? I'm shocked...

    No one seemed to care when shots were fired on my street last week. Don't even know if anyone was hurt. Cops did not even bother getting out of their car to investigate.

      Had the suspect fled the area? Do u know if the police already caught the person? If not, were residents on your street cooperating with the police after the shooting? Maybe they were containing the suspect by setting up a perimeter. I cant see the police staying in their car with a serious call as a shooting, or any call.
