OU: No evidence of shooting Wednesday, no injuries so far

Posted: Updated:

The University of Oklahoma warned students of a possible shooting on campus before noon on Wednesday, but later said there was no evidence of shots fired or any injuries.

The university asked students and staff to seek immediate shelter via a text message and social media alerts. Students reportedly received the warnings about 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The text read: "OU Emergency: Shooting on campus. Avoid (Gould Hall). Seek immediate shelter in place."

But shortly after noon, the school said "no evidence has been found of any shots being fired. There are no injuries reported at this time."

The university's website said Gould Hall is an architecture building on the southern end of the campus.
