Students and Northwestern community members were informed of the incident through emergency phone and email alerts and told to shelter in place on the Evanston campus.

Evanston Police Commander Ryan Glew says the Wednesday afternoon call was a "swatting" in which someone calls in a false report in the hopes in prompting a police department SWAT team to respond.

The Evanston campus at Northwestern University has been put on lockdown amid reports of a possible shooting, police and school officials say.

"Police continue to investigate a reported incident at Engelhart Hall". If you are on the Evanston campus, seek shelter in a safe place and remain there until further notice'.

The report of the shooter came as students across the country walked out of school to protest gun violence.

There is a report of a person with a gun in Engelhart Hall at the corner of Emerson Street and Maple Avenue.

Engelhart Hall is a graduate student complex that houses both graduate students and their partners and families, according to the Daily Northwestern.

"We were just told that we needed to stay inside", she said. "We were actually getting ready to run out and we went right back inside". According to ABC News, the incident was directly dubbed a "swatting incident", suggesting that it was a prank call directed towards the school.
