Gunfire at University of Cincinnati prompts active shooter warning to students

 

Our news partner, WCPO.com, is reporting that according to a Cincinnati police captain, shots were fired on campus stemming from some kind of argument near the campus recreation center, called Center Court, that included fisticuffs. 

The report came in just after 11 p.m., the captain said.

Police have found at least three shell casings on the ground. A later announcement over the campus public address system said no one had been hurt. 

"There is no threat to campus," officials tweeted.

Several students said via Twitter, that they have received text messages telling them to stay inside and stay away from the rec center.

UC Public Safety lifted the shelter-in-place order early Friday morning, according to our media partners. 

We will continue to update this story as more details become available.
