The school also tweeted about the report, asking people to stay away from the area and to "shelter in a safe place and stay until further notice".

About 3.40pm, the university updated their alert to say that that anyone not in Englehart Hall, no longer needed to shelter in place. "Remain sheltered or avoid the area".

Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew later revealed that police were alerted to the school after an unidentified person claimed to have shot his girlfriend; after struggling to find evidence, Glew suggested that the whole incident could have been a hoax.

Earlier Wednesday, Northwestern students staged a protest against gun violence, as part of the national walkout demonstrations in the wake of last month's Florida high school shooting. "We're still treating this as an active investigation". "Area is secure. Police and Fire are clearing the area". No gun was found at the scene.
