False report of shooting at Towson

TOWSON, Md. -- Baltimore County police say a report of a shooting at Towson University is unfounded.

The university initially urged students to shelter in place amid what it called an "unverified" report of a shooting, but lifted its warning 10 minutes later and said the report was false.

Cpl. Cathy Batton says the department received only one call about a shooting, but no victims were found.
