THOMASVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say gunfire struck the student life center on the campus of a south Georgia university, prompting a brief lockdown.
Thomas University said in a statement that no one was injured, and police and sheriff’s officials responded Monday to the campus in Thomasville.
Thomasville police say there were reports of people riding in a white car and a green car near the campus and firing at each other. Officers were searching for those vehicles Monday afternoon.
School officials said the campus was locked down around 2:45 p.m. Monday. It had warned students via Twitter of “an active shooter” on the campus. Less than 15 minutes later, the university said the lockdown had ended.
Thomasville, a city of about 18,000 people, is about 30 miles northeast of Tallahassee, Florida.
