(BLOOMINGTON) - Indiana University police and Bloomington police are investigating reports of shots fired following a robbery on the IU campus early Sunday morning.

The incident prompted university officials to send out safety alerts to students and faculty.

At approximately 1:33 a.m. Sunday morning, the official Twitter page for Indiana University sent a post warning about an active shooter on campus.

In the next series of tweets, students and others on campus were urged to seek shelter, lock the doors and remain in place until further notice.

IU police say robbery suspects fired shots near Henderson Parking Garage, and then fled to the northwest across campus on foot. The shooting suspect is described as a "shorter" college-aged black male with short hair. He is believed to have been part of a group of three or four black and two white males, all of them described as college-aged. One of the black males of the group was described as "taller" with his hair in a bun and wearing plaid shorts.

Officials don't believe anyone was injured at this time.

Bloomington police have taken over and are currently investigating the situation, and do have limited suspect descriptions.
