The University of Oklahoma reported late Friday night that there was no threat on campus, following an earlier alert warning of a possible active shooter.
The school sent out multiple tweets around 9:30pm informing students and staff of the potential danger. A thorough search was conducted by university officials and law enforcement, but no threat was found. The alert was subsequently canceled at 10:53pm.
University of Oklahoma President Joseph Harroz Jr said in a statement that “we are deeply grateful to our campus community for their cooperation.” He added that safety remains the highest priority, and the university will continue to review procedures to ensure the continued safety of its students and faculty.
We’ll provide more details as this story develops.
No injuries or casualties have been reported thus far. However, the University of Oklahoma community is urged to remain alert and report any suspicious activity to campus police immediately. There should be no further cause for concern as the university continues its investigation into the incident.
We will keep you updated with the latest information as it becomes available. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Stay safe, University of Oklahoma!
