Officials: Armed intruder reported on Louisiana State campus


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP/WNCN) — Some areas of Louisiana State University have returned to normal operations after a report of an armed intruder on campus.

LSU posted to Twitter saying that no shots have been fired and there have been no injuries. It said at 5:37 p.m. that those in the Quad area should remain sheltered in place and all other areas may return to normal operations.

“Continue to avoid the area or remail in a safe place,” the university said.

The university’s police department posted a message Tuesday on Twitter saying an armed intruder had been reported in Coates Hall and officers are on the scene. Coates Hall houses academic departments and several student support services, according to the LSU website.

The message tells students and others on the Baton Rouge campus to run, hide or fight.

The message also was posted to the top of the university’s website.
