CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati has lifted a shelter-in-place order that was issued following reports of shots fired on campus.

University police tell The Cincinnati Enquirer that two people were talking near a residence hall Monday night when one of them pulled out a gun and fired once, but missed.

Police say the person who fired the gun fled on foot. Police searched for the suspect, but could not find him.

University officials sent out a tweet Monday night, urging anyone on campus to “shelter in place, stay away from windows and lock doors.”

It’s not known if either of the two people involved in the incident are students.

No other information was immediately available.

The investigation is ongoing.
