By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:43 a.m. HST, Nov 06, 2013

The University of Hawaii got a real-life test of its emergency alert system, minutes after conducting a scheduled test of the system.

Honolulu police notifed Honolulu Community College that a man, possibly carrying a rifle, was seen on Dillingham Boulevard near HCC at about 10:15 a.m Tuesday.

HCC and the UH system sent out a security alert just after 10:30 a.m. warning students to be alert for a possible gunman wearing khaki shorts without a shirt.

HCC gave an all-clear at about 10:52 a.m., letting students know that police had checked the area and found no sign of a gunman.

The intial real-llife security alert went out about 15 minutes after the test alert and began "This is not a test."

The initial UH security alert said there was no indication that the suspect entered community college campus at  874 Dillingham Blvd.

Luckily, because we have strict gun laws and no border with a gun-loving red state, we have one of the lowest murder rates in the country.

That's an absolute lie. You need to check the crime stats. Hawaii is about average on the national scale, with a higher level of domestic violence. And we lead the nation in sword and machete assaults.
