*******************************

Here is the earlier update that is posted on www.wku.edu


Police are investigating

The South Campus building on Nashville Road was evacuated earlier
following reports that one or more persons were observed in the building
with weapons. WKU Police, Bowling Green Police and State Police have
conducted an extensive search of the building and the premises. At this
time, the police have been unable to find any witnesses or evidence to
support earlier reports that weapons were present.

Following this, WKU PD received an unconfirmed report of shots fired in
the vicinity of Pearce-Ford Tower on the WKU main campus.

Police have confirmed that there was a physical altercation not
involving weapons between individuals that occurred in or near PFT, but
the police are interviewing witnesses on the scene to determine if
weapons were or are present, or if shots were fired.

At this time, the campus emergency warning system has been activated.
Students and employees have been advised to remain indoors, in secure
areas, until an "all clear" is issued.

Classes for Wednesday afternoon and evening on the main campus have been
canceled. Classes at the WKU regional campus sites are still scheduled.

We will provide additional information as it becomes available.
