The University of Oklahoma in Norman reported a shooting on campus Wednesday.

"Avoid Gould Hall. Seek immediate shelter in place," the school said on Twitter and on its website.

Later, the school tweeted, "Normal campus operations have resumed except for Gould Hall where additional checking is continuing."

Gould Hall houses the university's College of Architecture.

University and campus police responded quickly, as did emergency personnel, the school tweeted, adding that the school's president, David Boren, is at the scene.

Major Bruce Chan of campus police told CNN there was a report of shots fired in that area of campus. It was not immediately known whether anyone has been wounded.

The incident took place at around 11:20 a.m. local time (12:20 p.m. ET), while classes were in session.

Students and faculty were alerted via text.

On Tuesday, a gunman shot and killed a man at Purdue University in Indiana.
