February 18, 2016 — A small gas leak in the Chavis University Center Tuesday night caused police to evacuate the building as a precaution around 9 p.m.  A dining hall employee told an officer in the building that he smelled gas. They identified the source as a hole in a pipeline for one of the grills. Students and employees waited outside for about 30 minutes while maintenance workers treated the problem. Fire stations No. 19 and No. 21 also responded to the call.
