TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Police have given the all-clear for an area of the University of Arizona campus that was searched Friday after receiving a report of a gunman.

The campus police department tells The Associated Press that officers found no indication of a shooter.

The department Twitter site said: "UAPD has cleared the Admin Bldg. No one was found, no injuries or signs of a shooting. The Stu Union IS OPEN."

Campus police spokesman Sgt. Juan Alvarez said earlier that police received a 911 call about a man with a rifle at the Administration Building, and numerous officers responded.

Police searched for a few hours before declaring the area open.
