Gunshot fired into ground on Kent State University campus; no injuries, suspect sought

An order for students and faculty members to shelter in place following the firing of a gunshot at a northeastern Ohio university has been lifted for most buildings on campus.

A Kent State University spokeswoman says a male suspect fired the shot into the ground Wednesday night near Bowman Hall, an academic building. No injuries have been reported.

The university had advised people to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was carrying a silver handgun. It later lifted the advisory for all buildings except Bowman Hall and the Business Administration Building.

University police are handling the investigation.

Kent State is a public research university located in Kent, a city of about 30,000 residents. It was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guardsmen during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.
