Active Shooter Situation at Ohio University

WSAZ is tracking a breaking news alert out of Ironton, where we are told law enforcement is on the scene of an active shooter situation at Ohio University - Southern.

A member of the faculty at Ohio University - Southern said there is a confirmed active shooter and the school is on lockdown.



Ryan Parker (@TheRyanParker) is tweeting that an Ohio State University spokeswoman is say that reports of an active shooter are inaccurate.


UPDATE: Local news is reporting that there is an all-clear given, campus removed from lock-down. No shooter has been found.



This opening post will be updated as more is known.

Every time I see one of these the bottom falls out of my stomach and I'm thinking please... Not again.

Thanks for reporting it for those of us without cable. Hopefully everything will turn out ok for all involved.

We have to start treating each other like human beings and start connecting with one another on an emotional level.

Thats the only way we can stop these events from happening.

From WSAZ's FB account:



Let's hope this is spot on and no shots were fired.

Blah blah blah GUNS! >:-(

But blah blah blah gun rights! Blah Muricah!


I'm sure both sides are ready at each other, I know where I stand in my mind but all that pales into nothing when you have an ongoing tragedy on your hands. Dissection and analysis should occur in due course, but for now my thoughts are for those in the wrong place at the wrong time. I cannot imagine how I would feel as a parent if a gunman showed up at my childs school, the anguish would be like nothing on earth. Being told to stay away, when a child is in direct harms way? My heart goes out to them.

Totally agree.

We need to go outside. Talk to our neighbors. Even if they're different than we are.

I think emotions are the problem these days too many people get their feelings hurt too easy we need to use are brains more then our hearts.

There's conflicting reports. Faculty are tweeting that there's an active shooter. Some students tweeting they heard gun fire. But a university spokesperson says there is a "lockdown," but no shooter.

Odd.

This is happening at a University.

And you're the first to mention "gun rights". Good job.

Your completely wrong, people need to get in touch with their emotions more but not let those emotions control them.

People are out of touch with themselves and allowing their emotions to control them is part of the problem. We need to wake up and understand those emotions and learn to connect with them and learn to connect with that experience in others.

Ohio University and Ohio State University are two separate schools. Ohio University is Ohio's first and oldest University where students get an education while Ohio State University is where they play Football.

The only way for that to happen is if we got rid of all types of social media.
