UPDATE: URI lockdown lifted after no evidence of gunman

April 4, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN(AP) — The University of Rhode Island is ending a lockdown and says an investigation has revealed there was no gun or active shooter at any time on its South Kingstown campus.
The school ordered students and staff to stay indoors Thursday after reports of a gunman on campus.
A student in an 11 a.m. physiology class told The Associated Press that she was sitting in the back of a large lecture hall when someone sounding scared yelled "You're a nice guy! You're a nice guy!"
The student says people then started to run and scream, and the professor told all the students to run.
The school has canceled classes for the day, and said they would resume Friday.
