All clear at Broward College South Campus after reports of gunshots unfounded

PEMBROKE PINES, FLA. (WSVN) - Pembroke Pines Police have given the all clear at Broward College South Campus after investigating reports of gunshots on campus.

A student posted a tweet saying she heard what sounded like gunshots from her classroom at campus at 7200 Pines Blvd., at 2:52 p.m., Monday.

Police responded and locked down the campus to search for anything suspicious but found nothing. The all clear was given around 4:30 p.m.

“It is overwhelming and a bit nervous,” a student said.

Mia-Paige Campbell and others did not take any chances and left as officers swept the campus.

“It’s a little scary considering the things with Parkland and all of that,” Campbell said. “Allegedly, there were gunshots, and there was a classroom that was swatted, so we were asked to evacuate the buildings. There’s a lot of police officers inside of the campus, so as far as right now, it doesn’t seem to be a very safe situation, so we’re just trying to get away from the school.”

Classes have since resumed at the campus.

“We didn’t know if it was real or if it was fake,” a second student said. “You hear some things like, ‘Nah, nah, nah, this isn’t real,’ and some students were like, ‘This is really serious.'”
