‘Go to a Room, Lock Door, Stay Away From Windows’: Frat House Stabbing Puts University on Lockdown

The harrowing words came at 5 a.m. on Sunday morning: “Seek shelter immediately. Go to a room, lock door, stay away from windows.”

Two people had been stabbed on campus.

The directive, tweeted by Tufts University, was lifted around 8 a.m. EDT as the university was searched and the pair of stabbings was deemed to be “non-random,” WBZ-TV reported.

Two people are being treated at a Boston hospital following the stabbings.

A Tufts spokeswoman told WBZ that the stabbings occurred at a fraternity on Professors Row, and that the victims are not affiliated with the university.

WBZ noted that Tufts’ commencement took place on May 17, so it’s unclear how many students were still on campus when the lockdown order went into effect.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
