University of Oklahoma officials clear the campus, no shots fired

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Officials at the University of Oklahoma have cleared the scene, saying there is no evidence of a shooting occurring on campus Wednesday.

Officials first said a shooting occurred on its campus and told everyone to shelter in place.

The school posted a notice on its website earlier Wednesday that people should avoid Gould Hall. A notice sent by its Twitter account said: "Seek immediate shelter in place."

There were no injuries.

The university is located in Norman, about 20 miles south of Oklahoma City.

This is the third report of a shooting on a college campus in a three-day span. A gun man shot a student in a parking lot at Widener University in Pennsylvania on Monday. A man killed one after a shooting on Purdue's campus Tuesday.
