Texas A&M police released a copy of an emergency call placed Friday, March 6 to the University Police Department. The call came from a man who claimed a gunman was on campus.

The caller told police that an armed gunman was inside the Bright Building on the A&M campus, but authorities believe it was all a hoax.

They're now hoping the emergency call leads to the person behind the prank.

This is a portion of the emergency call:

Caller: "It's a dude over here got a gun on somebody over here."

Dispatcher: "Where at?"

Caller: "Uh, I don't know what building this is, but he got a gun on him. A white dude got a gun on another white--."

Dispatcher: "Which building?"

Police traced the call back to a campus phone.

In the remainder of the phone call, you hear the caller tell police that he doesn't know where he is and even asks someone the name of the building he was in.

That may indicate he was unfamiliar with the university.

Dispatcher: "Hello?"

Caller: "Yes?"

Dispatcher: "Okay, did you find out which building?"

Caller: "Hang on... Uh, hello?"

Dispatcher: "Yeah?"

Caller: "Uh, Bryant Building. Breight? Uh, Brant?"

Dispatcher: "Brayton?"

Caller: "Yeah."

Dispatcher: "The fire field?"

Caller: "Huh?"

Dispatch: "The fire field? Which building?"

Caller: "Bright."

Dispatch: "Okay, which floor?"

Caller: "Third floor."

Dispatch: "Third floor?"

Caller: "Yeah."

Dispatch: "Sir? Hello? We don't have contact with the R.P. anymore."

If you recognize the caller's voice or saw anything that day, you're asked to contact A&M police.

Making a false report at a public university is considered a state jail felony.
