Kansas State University officials have confirmed that shots were fired at a parking lot on campus but that no injuries have been reported and there is "no ongoing threat."

University spokeswoman Beth Bohn said Thursday that the area is now safe and people are free to move about after they initially were ordered to shelter in place. An update posted on the university website said the shots were fired in a parking lot north of the Foundation Building, where fundraising efforts are organized.

Riley County police directed calls to university police, who directed calls to the university communications office. Bohn declined to say if anyone had been arrested.

Kansas State University's campus is in Manhattan, about 120 miles west of Kansas City, Missouri.
