Police arrest 'person of interest' in Yale threat

Posted: Updated:

NEW HAVEN, Conn (AP) - New Haven police say they have arrested on unrelated charges a "person of interest" who may have information about a Nov. 25 phone call that said an armed man would shoot up the Yale University campus.

Police said Monday an unidentified woman was arrested for two warrants unrelated to the Yale case that prompted a six-hour lockdown of the campus.

Police say she may be able to provide valuable information to investigators.

Police also released a photo of the woman, but no other details.

SWAT teams didn't find a gunman after a room-by-room search. No one was injured.

A 911 call was received from a man at a pay phone about a mile from the campus who said his roommate was on the way to the university to shoot people.

Johnmichael O'Hare says gone are the days when the Bloods wore red from head to toe. All you'll see now, he says, is maybe a red handkerchief sticking out of a back pocket.
