    Ky. campus on lockdown after report of shots fired (Merged)

    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Western Kentucky University was on lockdown Wednesday after someone reported seeing people with weapons in a building on a satellite campus and police later received reports that shots had been fired on the main campus, about two miles away.

    According to the university Web site, police searched the South Campus building but were not able to find any people with guns or witnesses who could confirm the reports.

    They later sent a text message warning students to seek shelter after the reports of shots fired in or near Pearce Ford Tower residence hall, on the school's main campus, though those reports were also unconfirmed.

    According to the Web site, police confirmed that there was some type of fight that occurred in or near the residence hall, but they could not confirm that weapons were involved or shots were fired. The school is about an hour north of Nashville, Tenn.

    "What we believe we have is an altercation between a group of individuals," school spokeswoman Robbin Taylor told CNN. "It began in one area of the campus, moved to another area of the campus."

    The campus emergency warning system was activated and students and employees were told to remain indoors until an "all clear" was issued.

    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- Officials have reported an armed man on Western Kentucky University's campus.

    The Western Kentucky University campus remains on lockdown Wednesday afternoon due to reports of shots fired near Pearce-Ford Tower, a student dormitory.

    WKU issued the following text alert at 12:30 p.m. CT Wednesday: "An armed man has been reported on WKU South Campus. Please stay clear of this area."

    Reports state that police are searching for four people dressed in black with guns. Kentucky State Police, Bowling Green police, and campus police have evacuated South Campus.

    Around 12:30 p.m., school officials sent out the following text alert: "Shots fired near Pearce Ford Tower. Seek shelter immediately."

    Bowling Green police have confirmed reports of shots fired on WKU's main campus at Pearce Ford Tower.

    Reports say one person has been taken into custody for questioning in connection with this incident.

    Police are still on the scene and everyone is being advised to steer clear of the area or stay indoors.

    At this time, there are no reports of any injuries.

    Several other local schools are on lockdown in response to this situation.

    James Williams said that he got the following text message from his daughter at 1:37 p.m.: "Stay away from south campus because armed men are running around campus. All students have been moved to the main campus."

    University spokesman Bob Skipper says the incident is occurring inside the school’s South Campus. Skipper says the building has been evacuated and police are searching the area.

    University lawyer Deborah Wilkins says there are no reports of injuries.

    Skipper says he has little information at this point.

    WLKY and WLKY.com will continue to provide updates on this late breaking news.

    No shots fired... just a fistfight
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
