Lockdown At University Of Rhode Island

The University of Rhode Island is ending a lockdown and said an investigation has revealed there was no gun or active shooter at any time on campus.

The school ordered students and staff to stay indoors Thursday, after reports of a gunman on campus.

A student in an 11 a.m. physiology class told The Associated Press that she was sitting in the back of a large lecture hall when someone sounding scared yelled "You're a nice guy!  You're a nice guy!"  The student said people then started to run and scream, and the professor told all of the students to run.

The university canceled all classes for the day, and said classes would resume on Friday.
