Report of gunman at Pace was man with gothic-style belt: Source

A report of a gunman inside Pace University in lower Manhattan Thursday afternoon was unfounded, police said. 

The campus on Park Row was evacuated shortly after 2:30 p.m. after three people reported to police that they saw a man with a gun and ammo inside a bathroom, a law enforcement source said. The apparent weapon was actually a gothic-style belt, the source said.

Julia Bush, 18, was in her economics lecture waiting for it to start when her TA got a call that they needed to leave.

"They opened up all the construction areas," she said. "I'm just a little flustered. It was definitely very hurried, everyone was very shaken up by everything."
