Police: Gunman at Iona was Hoax

iona

New Rochelle police are now investigating the incident at Iona College over the weekend as a hoax.

On Saturday, while a video game convention was underway on the North Avenue Campus, a caller to the Yonkers Police claimed to be on or near the campus with an assault rifle. The Yonkers PD handed the case off to New Rochelle.

For two hours, police swarmed the campus and searched by helicopter for a gunman while traffic was shut down.

By 1:00 pm, people were allowed back into the area.
