VALPARAISO, Ind. (WLS) -- A campus lockdown at Valparaiso University was lifted early Thursday morning, after reports of an active shooter were deemed unfounded, school officials said.
On Wednesday, the Valparaiso University Police Department received reports of individuals carrying guns on campus near Beacon Hall, according to a statement from the school's president's office.
An order to shelter in place was issued at 12:10 a.m. Thursday, as university police and the Porter County Sheriff's Office investigated.
