Kent State University says a person suspected of firing a gun on campus has been apprehended, and there's no longer a threat to anyone at the school.
The university posted a notice about the capture on its Twitter page late Wednesday night.
A Kent State spokeswoman says the male suspect fired the shot into the ground around 9 p.m. Wednesday near the Bowman Hall academic building.
No injuries were reported.
The university initially advised people across campus to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was believe to be carrying a silver handgun.
The campus was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guard members during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.
