The cancelation of activities was prompted because, “earlier, some students reported receiving anonymous texts of a potential shooter on campus,” said Tony Allen, the Executive Provost of the university.
In a text message to the University community, The Provost stated that “Delaware State University Police took precaution to ensure that the campus was safe and conducted a thorough search of all buildings along with our law enforcement partners, State Police, Dover Police and Capital Police.”
The Provost confirmed that “The police have determined there was no active shooter” on campus.  He stated further that “given the day’s events, I have decided to cancel all classes for the remainder of the day.”
The message sent out  advised that “if you have not been given the “all clear,” to please remain in place until that time.
