FAU Lockdown/Shooting

Today in Boca Raton on the Florida Atlantic University campus (FAU) a man discharged a firearm.  Police received notice  at 1:16 AM, determined the shots came from the student apartments and at 1:45 AM police activated a newly installed siren and p.a. system, alerting the campus community there was an armed suspect on campus and that all campus residents and visitors should seek shelter immediately. -Wink News.com

This is the first I have heard of a siren pa system used in a school shooting situation.  It reminds me of the old air raid siren's of years long gone.  Seems like a good idea it will be interesting to see how using it plays out in future school incidence.
