Police are investigating reports of a gunman at the University of Rhode Island.

Steven O'Donnell, head of the Rhode Island State Police, tells The Associated Press on Thursday that there is no evidence of an active shooter.

The school in South Kingstown wrote on its Twitter feed late Thursday morning that it was investigating a possible gunman on campus. It told people to seek shelter and stay where they were.

O'Donnell says the gunman was reported at Chafee Hall, which houses several departments including psychology, journalism and economics and some college administration offices.

Messages left with URI spokespeople were not immediately returned.
