Authorities asked anyone on campus to continue sheltering in place until the area is cleared, and described the incident as an "active investigation."

Police Rushed To Spot On Receiving Information About Shooting

Earlier, on Wednesday, police responded to reports of a shooting with multiple victims on the campus, near Beam Hall, the home of the university's Lee Business School, according to a social media post.

At 11.54 am (local time), the university posted an emergency notice online, saying, "University Police responding to report of shots fire in BEH evacuate to a safe area, RUN-HIDE-FIGHT."

Shortly after, the university informred that police were responding to "additional report of shots fired in the Student Union", and advised people to evacuate the area.

"I was sitting outside, I was just having breakfast. I heard three loud booms and I was like, oh, what was that?" a student told CNN affiliate KVVU, adding, "Police showed up, then I ran inside.

"After two minutes, more shots. I ran into the basements, and I was there for 20," the student said, adding, "I was just hearing a lot of shots."

This latest incident comes as students are in the middle of a study week before taking final exams and going on winter break, in the same city that suffered the worst mass shooting in modern US history in 2017, CNN reported.
