Two months after reports of a gunman on the Cambridge campus turned out to be a hoax, Massachusetts Institute of Technology went into lockdown Thursday night when a MIT police officer was shot by an unknown suspect.

According to WCVB, the victim is male and suffering life-threatening injuries. MIT has sent out an emergency alert to students and asked them to stay inside.

The scene happened around 10:30 pm (EST) outside of Building 32 (Stata) and 76 (Koch) near Vassar and Main Streets. The Police have arrived at the scene. According to MIT, the situation is under investigation and it is still very active.
