SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) — Police are still investigating reports of a gunman at the University of Rhode Island, and the university says no injuries have been reported.
One student says she was in a physiology class when someone sounding scared started to scream, “You’re a nice guy! You’re a nice guy!” and the professor told all the students to run.
Tori Danielson tells The Associated Press she heard no gunshots Thursday morning and never saw a gun. She says there were more than 350 in the classroom at Chafee Hall.
The school in South Kingstown has told people to seek shelter and stay where they are. The school also canceled classes for the day.
Steven O’Donnell, head of the Rhode Island State Police, says there is no evidence of an active shooter.
