Christian Basi, the associate director of MU’s News Bureau, says that he is aware of concerns regarding the timing of MU’s Alert system Wednesday night following the shooting at Hitt Street Garage and is working to provide answers. While multiple witnesses said via social media they heard shots fired at Hitt Street Garage just before 11 p.m. Wednesday, the first MU Alert was not sent until 11:28 p.m. Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin tweeted Thursday morning saying that MU is investigating the process of issuing alerts and will report the results. Basi declined further comment.
