Sorority’s Balloon-Popping Party Sparks Active-Shooter Alert, Campus Lockdown in Michigan

Members of a sorority at the University of Michigan have apologized for causing panic after their team-building activity triggered a false active-shooter alert and campus lockdown two weeks ago.

According to an apology letter by the Ann Arbor chapter of alpha Kappa Delta Phi, they were popping balloons during a bonding event when people reported the noise, mistaking them to be gunshots.
