Saint Louis University issues all clear for campus


ST. LOUIS (AP) — Saint Louis University officials issued an all clear and said people could resume normal activities after police investigated reports of a suspicious man on campus and possible shots fired.

No injuries were reported after the alert was issued Wednesday at the private, Catholic university.

St. Louis police detained a male student for questioning and issued the warning on its social media sites. Students were told to stay away from Spring Hall, after reports of a man wearing a black hoodie and possibly carrying a handgun.

The school later relocated students from Spring Hall to a recreation center.

The school also received reports of shots being fired outside Marchetti East but police said those reports couldn’t be confirmed.
