OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore County Police say two students who were shooting ducks and geese near Stevenson University were the cause of a report that triggered a campus lockdown.

The department said on its official Twitter feed late Monday that no charges will be filed in the incident.

University President Kevin J. Manning said in an emailed statement that the two students were hunting with BB guns in the woods near campus.

Police say the investigation began about 2:25 p.m. Monday when two people saw what they thought was a person with a gun and called 911. The university ordered the Owings Mills campus on lockdown. The lockdown was lifted shortly after 5 p.m.
