KSU: Report of shot fired into ground on campus

KENT, Ohio - Police believe a suspect who allegedly fired a shot into the ground on the main campus of Kent State University is no longer on campus. No injuries were reported.

The latest bulletin was issued at 11:45 p.m. on KSU's Web Site stating "The Business Administration Building has been cleared and the shelter in place advisory has been canceled for the entire Kent Campus. Police believe the suspect is no longer on campus."

The University initially released an advisory shortly after 9 p.m. that a gunshot was fired into the ground outside of Bowman Hall.

No one was injured but the University and police asked students to stay sheltered at that time.

They said the suspect was a black male wearing basketball shorts and carrying a silver handgun.

The shelter in place advisory was later lifted for all buildings except Bowman and the Business Administration Building around 10:26 p.m. and then only the Business Administration at 11 p.m. Again the advisory was canceled for the entire campus at 11:45 p.m.
