Suspect in shooting at Kent State in custody

KENT (AP) — Kent State University says a person suspected of firing a gun on campus has been apprehended, and there is no longer a threat to anyone at the school.
The university posted a notice on its Twitter page Wednesday night.
Kent State police say the suspect is in custody at Robinson Memorial Hospital in Ravenna.
A Kent State spokeswoman says the male suspect fired the shot into the ground around 9 p.m. It happened near Bowman Hall, an academic building that was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guard members during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.
No injuries were reported following Wednesday night’s gunfire.
The university initially advised people across campus to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was believe to be carrying a silver handgun.
