NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Univ. of Oklahoma: No evidence of shots fired, no injuries reported.

Local police say they have no independent confirmation of a shooting Wednesday but have sent up to a half-dozen officers to the campus, which is about 20 miles south of Oklahoma City.

The university posted a notice on its website Wednesday that people should avoid Gould Hall. A notice sent by its Twitter account said: "Seek immediate shelter in place."

Norman Police Capt. Tom Easley said five to six of the city's officers went sent to the school to assist campus officers. Medical teams and the fire department were placed on alert but Easley said "we have no confirmation of anything yet."

it would appear open season has been declared in our nations schools & institutions of higher learning !!! as such, we can now employ those soon to be released tsa agents to be checkpoint charlie agents at all schools & colleges across America... and it won't cost us a dime, as the cost will be paid by local taxpayers & students, not the government... so clooege tuition will be going up & metal detectors will be installed in pre-k to 12th grade,, and colleges.. cars will be screened to be certain no bombs are smuggled onto school properties... time to home school the kids folks !!! and quit paying school taxes....
