Shots fired at Catholic U; no injuries
Gunshots were fired Friday morning on the campus of Catholic University, but authorities said no one was injured and they do not think there is a continuing threat.
About 8:45 a.m., the university's Department of Public Safety learned of a report of possible gunshots, school officials said in a statement.
Campus and District police responded and determined the gunfire came from the area in front of Millennium North and South residence halls on John McCormack Road. Authorities searched the campus and did not find anyone who was injured or any suspects.
According to a statement by Thomasine N. Johnson, the university's Director of Public Safety and Emergency Management authorities do not believe anyone connected to the university was involved.
Officials said a possible suspect has been described as thin black man, wearing a white T-shirt with red and black lettering or images, gray sweat pants, and some type of gray top with a hood.
