A man wearing a bandolier full of real ammunition caused a scare at the University of Central Florida campus on Tuesday, police said.
UCF police responded to the Classroom 1 building for a report of a suspicious person, which also prompted extra law enforcement on campus. They said they found a man wearing the bandolier, which was loaded with real ammunition, as part of a Halloween costume.
THIS was the costume that was being worn by the person in Classroom I today.— UCF Police Dept. (@UCFPolice) October 30, 2018
Friendly advice from UCFPD:
Do NOT incorporate simulated or ACTUAL ammunition/weapons into your costumes. It scares others & puts safety at risk. If you see suspicious activity, call 911 immediately. pic.twitter.com/cqkLdKRxrO

They said the man was detained and is being interviewed. Police did not specify if he was a student.
