Police Make Arrest In BTK Murders

A report of gunfire Friday on a college campus near Seattle sparked a lockdown, but law enforcement officials who scoured the campus could find no evidence of a shooting.

Highline College in Des Moines, Washington posted a status update on their Facebook alerting students and staff that a lockdown was in place due to reports of gunfire on campus.

Police and other agencies will still remain on the campus to ensure security.

But, again, "we are unaware of any victims so far and this is good news", he said.

The situation is unfolding two days after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at a high school in southern Florida.

Police say they are trying to determine whether shots were fired.

"Renton PD and multiple agencies assisting at Highline Comm College for reports of "shots fired", nothing confirmed yet", the Renton Police Department tweeted at 12:21 p.m.

An employee at Chevron along Pacific Highway across from Highline College said after answering the phone that police and ambulances were "everywhere".

Panicked students have been tweeting and texting their loved ones, claiming to have heard gunshots.

"I hope I'm here to answer when you call back", the person said.

The Highline campus is in King County, Washington, south of Seattle.

"We take these kinfd of incidents very seriously", he said.

On Thursday, a South Carolina Broome High School student was arrested after he posted a threat on social media where he said: "Round 2 of Florida tomorrow", the Conservative Firing Line reported.

Very few details are available at this point, but from what we know, a community college in Washington state, Highline College, is now on lockdown, according to a local CBS affiliate.
