WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Purdue University officials confirmed a report of shots fired near Purdue Village Building 139 was a false alarm.
Officials declared an all-clear after police said there was no ongoing threat to campus Wednesday evening.
The university sent an alert to students about a report of two possible gunshots just after 8 p.m.
Officials asked people to avoid the area while they investigated.
Purdue spokeswoman Liz Evans confirmed the report, but said officials had not found anything.
"Purdue University police have determined a report of gunshots in the Purdue Village area was unfounded. Police went through the area and made door-to-door checks and were unable to find any problem. There is no ongoing threat to campus," officials said just before 9 p.m.
The scare came a day after 21-year-old Andrew Boldt was fatally shot in the Electrical Engineering Building. Police arrested 23-year-old Cody Cousins on a charge of murder in connection with the shooting.
Students were expected to return to campus and resume classes Thursday.
