No Injuries After Reports of Shots Fired at K-State Manhattan Campus

A portion of the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan temporarily shut down due to reports of shots fired on Thursday morning.

Students received text alerts from the school shortly after 11 a.m. on Thursday advising them of reports of shots fired at the K-State Foundation building at the intersection of Kimball and Dennison. The public was asked to stay away from the area.

Several agencies including the K-State Police Department, Riley County Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol responded. After less than an hour, authorities declared the scene safe and allowed the workers in the Foundation building to go back to work after being in lockdown.

Authorities have not yet released their official finding or whether or not shots were even fired at this point. There are no injuries.
