Tulane artist reports man with shotgun outside A Studio in the Woods building

Tulane University Police Department received a call from an artist stating two men she let use her phone earlier returned carrying a shotgun around 9:47 p.m. Tuesday at A Studio in the Woods.

A Studio in the Woods is a Tulane-owned artist retreat that houses Tulane and Xavier Center for Biomedical Research. It is located at 13401 Patterson Road in New Orleans.

According to the reporting person, when the suspects noticed her, they fled into the woods in an unknown direction.

New Orleans Police Department and TUPD officers arrived at the scene and did not see any suspects. The reporting person said the subject with the shotgun never approached her or attempted to reenter the building.

It is currently unclear what the subjects were doing outside the building.
