Water gun sparks scare on Princeton campus

July 28, 2009 5:25:27 AM PDT
Princeton University briefly alerted the campus after an employee spotted a male walking with a gun. The gun turned out to be a toy water pistol and an "all clear" was sounded minutes later Monday.

A Princeton spokeswoman says the man was believed to be participating in a summer camp on the Ivy league campus.

The alert was the third gun scare at Princeton this year. Four teens caused a brief panic when one was spotted tucking a toy gun in his waistband in June and a student was seen in March with a permanently disabled rifle.
