Manhattan Kansas

MANHATTAN, KS (KCTV) – Police at Kansas State University said the scene of a report of shots fired near the campus is now safe.

According to the report, the incident happened around 11 a.m. at the Kansas State University Foundation building, located at 1800 Kimball Avenue.

An earlier campus advisory advised those in the building to shelter in place and for the public to stay clear of the area.

The alert was then updated to note that no injuries had been reported at the scene and that staff at the foundation building were resuming their normal work while police continued to investigate.

Faculty, staff and students on campus were alerted to the incident, but no lockdowns or lockouts were put in place.

The university said there is no ongoing threat.

According to campus police, the situation involved a dispute between people that appears to be unrelated to the campus. The individuals originally contact each other on the eastern side of Manhattan, off the campus. They then continued to the parking lot north of the foundation building, where the shots were fired. 

After the shooting, the victim drove to the police department to report the incident. That victim is not a student. 

No suspect has been arrested, but campus and county police are continuing the investigation. 

Anyone who witnessed the event should call K-State Police at 785-532-6412. The Riley County police can be reached at 785-537-2112.

Students at K-State are in their final week of classes before finals beginning Monday.
