South Carolina officials say shots were fired on the university's campus Thursday afternoon, but there is no longer a threat


Columbia, SC (WLTX) - University of South Carolina officials say shots were fired on the university's campus Thursday afternoon, but there is no longer a threat on campus.
The school sent out a Carolina Alert, its campus notification system, on e-mail and Twitter around 1:20 p.m. saying the incident happened at the Arnold School of Public Health. The alert told students to seek safe shelter and to obey officials.
At 2:15 p.m., they followed up with an additional alert that said there was no longer an existing threat on campus.
Law enforcement officials told News19 earlier that the shooter was inside the health building. No additional details were immediately available, on what may have led up to the shooting, but a heavy police presence could be seen in the area.
