Gunman arrested on Mississippi State campus; no injuries reported.

It said there was “no report at this time of any shots that have been fired” and that no injuries had immediately been reported. A reported shooter at Mississippi State University was taken into custody Thursday afternoon, according to a tweet from the college’s official feed for emergency and advisory information. By 10:25 a.m. local time, the emergency department’s website stated that the suspect was in custody and people were encouraged to continue seeking safety and sheltering in place. People on campus tweeted photos of the suspect being handcuffed, the police presence on the grounds and classroom doors being barricaded with multiple desks.

The university had issued an online alert shortly after 10 a.m. saying a gunman had been reported near Carpenter Hall, which houses MSU’s mechanical engineering department and overlooks the Drill Field at the heart of the 20,000-student university in Starkville. The news station also reported that the university’s spokesman confirmed to the Associated Press that a person was arrested, but did not provide further information.
