OKLAHOMA-UNIVERSITY SHOOTING

NORMAN - The University of Oklahoma locked down its campus Wednesday after a faculty member reported hearing gunshots but the school’s president said it appeared the incident was a false alarm perhaps tied to construction equipment being used nearby. “It seems most likely there were other sounds” that could have been misinterpreted as gunfire, university President David Boren said at a news conference. He said police found no casings and no one who appeared to be a “potential shooter.” No injuries were reported. By Kristi Eaton. SENT: 470 words, photos.
