MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- Officials at Ball State University in Indiana say they've cleared most people from buildings at the center of a search launched amid reports that an armed person might be on the central Indiana campus.
Ball State spokesman Tony Proudfoot says no shots have been fired and no gun has been found at the campus about 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
A university alert sent about 4:40 p.m. Friday reported a "possible armed assailant" near the Muncie campus' Student Recreation and Wellness Center. Students and staff in several buildings were urged to secure themselves in a safe location until the area was cleared.
The university issued another alert about 6:30 p.m. saying police were still assessing affected buildings and that residence halls would remain locked down until an all-clear was issued.
