And that’s not all! The St. Louis Post reports recent shootings in the area.

In a shooting earlier this month, a teen was shot near the Washington University medical campus adjacent to Barnes-Jewish Hospital. That also prompted an alert, though it did not in the end appear to be connected to the university.

And last month, Washington University briefly issued an emergency alert because of a report of gunfire along the MetroLink tracks near its North Campus facility at 700 Rosedale Avenue in St. Louis.

This is a developing story.

UPDATE: As of 2:50 p.m., an all clear was issued by campus security.
