University of Oklahoma Police Public Information Officer Catherine Bishop said there was "no evidence of shots being fired" and "no injuries reported" following an emergency alert on the campus Wednesday morning.

Norman police said at 11:17 a.m. they received a report of shot or shots fired and issued an alert.

Normal operations have resumed on campus except for Gould Hall, where the shots were reported. According to the university's Twitter, police are performing additional checks there.

The alert drew a large response from both campus and local police.

"Both the Norman and OU police department have very quickly responded as well as emergency personnel," Bishop said.
