Follow-up to off campus armed intruder/shooting incident April 5, 2017

This is a follow-up to the Loyola Alert emails and text messages sent in the evening of April 5, 2017. In the 10 p.m. hour Loyola Campus Police received information about a shooting that occurred in an area near Loyola’s Evergreen campus, on Ready Avenue a block east of York Road (Loyola is located blocks west of York Road). The suspect fled the shooting scene in a vehicle and was seen heading toward Norwood Road in a neighborhood bordering the east side of Loyola’s campus. The suspect then exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Baltimore City Police and Loyola Campus Police responded immediately. After conducting an extensive search, Baltimore City Police were not able to locate the suspect. Police did, however, determine that the suspect was no longer in the area and issued an “all clear.”

Campus Police and Baltimore City Police will be active in this area for the rest of the evening. If you do not have to be in this area, avoid it. Call Campus Police for escorts if needed.

Anyone who might have information about this incident should call Campus Police at 410-617-5010 or 410-617-5911. If you are in an emergency situation or need to report an incident, contact Loyola public safety at 410-617-5911 (emergencies) or 410-617-5010 (non-emergency). Please do not respond to PM_Evergreen emails to report an incident or request emergency assistance.


Ongoing preparedness information

Staff and administrators: Inclement weather policy when Loyola is open

When weather is severe and Loyola is open, some employees may decide it is unsafe to come to work/remain at work. If an employee decides not to come to work or to leave, they must ask their supervisor/department chair for approval. Employees with an approved absence or early departure due to inclement weather may use vacation leave, personal leave, or leave without pay for the absence. For additional information see policy 4.5 through 4.6 of the Staff and Administrator Policy Manual.

Students and faculty: Academic continuity

There are several options for students and faculty to stay connected and maintain coursework when classes are canceled and campus is closed.

  • Faculty members are encouraged to develop a plan and inform students so that they understand course expectations. Please review the Maintaining Class During University Closures page on the academic affairs website for information on inclement weather, options for instructional continuity, and guidance from the Faculty Handbook.
  • Students are encouraged to consult the syllabus, course Moodle page, and email communication from their instructors.


This page will be updated with alerts and emergency information during incidents that affect the Loyola University Maryland community. Students, parents, faculty, staff, and administrators are encouraged to sign up for text alerts through e2Campus, connect with Loyola on Facebook, and follow Loyola on Twitter for immediate information during an emergency.
