I'd love to see the paperwork at N.C. State public safety after a Nerf-war staging of the popular "Humans vs. Zombies" tag game resulted in an emergency alert of gunmen roaming the campus. "Cause of disturbance: Zombie Apocalypse"?

State (full disclosure: my alma mater) staged an HvZ event sometime this week. During daylight hours Wednesday, pubic safety got two calls regarding a dude, strapped (with a Nerf weapon), walking into Riddick Hall and then also on nearby Current Drive north toward Hillsborough Street. Officers went to both scenes but found no suspects nor any witnesses.


Friday, they finally sounded the all-clear: "Both reports of individuals on campus who might be carrying handguns were related to the Humans vs. Zombies game, and that there was no threat to campus. Both incidents were related to the same individual, who contacted police after hearing the descriptions and locations." Bet that guy feels weird.
