Police investigate shots fired complaint at Virginia Union University

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) – Police say no one was injured after responding to a shots fired complaint at Virginia Union University Wednesday afternoon. VUU and Richmond Police responded to the scene.

Earlier reports suggested one person had been shot in the leg. Police confirmed no one was shot, however, adding that there is no evidence to support someone was struck by gunfire.

The incident occurred just after 4 p.m.

While police in the area heard gunshots, officers could not confirm if the gunfire was the result of a back and forth exchange. Police conducted a shooting investigation but no shooting victim was located after a search of the entire campus.

In light of Wednesday’s mass shooting in Florida, Richmond police say they will remain on campus throughout the evening.
