Hoax, per AP:

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. A false report of a gunman at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that briefly caused a campus-wide lockdown Saturday stemmed from an electronic message sent to police, authorities said.

Officers searched for a man reported to be carrying a long rifle and wearing body armor but found nothing unusual, Cambridge police said. The report that alleged that the gunman was barricaded inside a building on campus turned out to be a hoax, and there was no threat to public safety, state police spokesman David Procopio said.
