This afternoon's classes are being cancelled at the University of Rhode Island after there were reports of a gunman at the main campus in Kingston. The state police say there is no evidence of an active shooter and no injuries have been reported. The university's website says a person claimed to have a gun while inside a classroom at the school so the entire building was evacuated as a precaution. URI administrators alerted students to stay inside other buildings until the scene was secured.
