NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- University of Oklahoma officials say they found no evidence of shots being fired on campus.
Earlier, the university put out an alert telling everyone to stay where they were Wednesday after there were reports of shots being fired. University spokeswoman Catherine Bishop says in a statement that normal campus operations have resumed except for Gould Hall, where additional checking is continuing.
Local police say they sent up to a half-dozen officers to the campus, which is about 20 miles south of Oklahoma City.
The university had posted a notice on its website Wednesday that people should avoid Gould Hall. A notice sent by its Twitter account said: "Seek immediate shelter in place."
Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said five to six of the city's officers went sent to the school to assist campus officers.
