Baylor ‘All Clear' After Reported Shooting Near Campus

Police have given Baylor the "all clear" after a university alert went out following a reported shooting near the Waco campus.

An alert was sent out at 4:48 p.m. via Baylor's Twitter account instructing everyone on campus to seek immediate shelter away from doors and windows due to a reported shooting at a nearby apartment complex.

The apartment complex, Eastgate Apartments in the 1900 block of S. 5th Street, is described as a "student apartment community" on its website.

Police said witnesses observed "suspects fleeing the area away from campus."

In its initial instructions, the university added that the situation was not weather related and was not a drill.
