NORMAN Okla_ Norman Police are still investigating a reported shooting at the University of Oklahoma campus, despite the University stating normal campus operations have resumed.

OU's President has said the cause for the reports of a shooting may have been a piece of machinery that backfired.

OU's facebook page released the following statement regarding the reported shooting and its subsequent investigation:

"As of this time, no evidence has been found of any shots being fired. There are no injuries reported at this time. Both the Norman and OU police department have very quickly responded as well as emergency personnel. President Boren is at the scene. Normal campus operations have resumed except for Gould Hall where additional checking is continuing."

Students reportedly received a push notification about the reported shooting around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. Police first got the reports of the shooting around 11:17AM.

The push notification OU sent to its students advised they stay away from Gould Hall. It is an architecture building on the south end of campus near the football stadium and Gaylord College.

SWAT teams reportedly entered Gould Hall, searching for anyone responsible. We're told there have been no more reports of an active shooter or any victims yet.

We'll keep you updated as the story develops.
