Officials at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis have issued the “All Clear” after receiving a report of a gunman on campus.
The original report came in around 12:30 p.m. after a student said she saw a man with a “long gun” on campus. Police later said they received two additional reports of a person matching the description.
In response, IUPUI, state and Indianapolis Metropolitan police searched the campus, going building-to-building in order to find that person. Students on campus were told to seek shelter and advised not to leave campus buildings. Anyone not on campus was told to stay away.
IUPUI officials called off the alert around 5 p.m., saying all buildings had been searched and no gunman had been found. Normal operations and scheduled evening classes are in effect.
The lockdown at nearby IU Health University Hospital and Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health has also been lifted.
