CINCINNATI — University of Cincinnati police are investigating after a call was made reporting a shooting on campus Sunday afternoon.

UC spokesperson Kelly Cantwell said UC police responded to a call for shots fired near Dabney Hall. Cantwell said there were no injuries or arrests related to the incident.

UC tweeted around 1:30 p.m. that the scene near Dabney Hall is considered safe.

WCPO is aware of the video alleging to depict the possible shooting on campus and is working to obtain permission from the person who recorded it to use online and on air.

In the video, three people are seen arguing in the street outside Dabney Hall. During the argument, a man can be seen retrieving a gun from his car. The two other people appear to get into a different car and speed off while the man fires four shots at the moving car.

The person recording the video ran from the scene after the first two shots were fired.

WCPO will update this story when more information becomes available.
