Gunshots fired at Kent State University on Wednesday night have prompted a lockdown.

Officials say that there are no reported injuries.

Photos from campus show police with rifles and gear inside the Business Administration building.

Sydney Bachochin, a student at the school, said via Twitter: “Shots fired literally right near my dorm. They have us locked down so tight we can’t even open up our doors…”
