BATON ROUGE - A campus-wide security alert that warned students and faculty to avoid an LSU apartment complex turned out to be a false alarm, the school said Monday afternoon.

The school initially reported around 2 p.m. that city and campus police were investigating reports of gunfire at West Campus Apartments at the corner of Aster and Alaska streets. Within about 20 minutes of alerting students to the situation, police determined that no shots were fired. 

Police at the apartment complex were seen placing a man in handcuffs, though it's unclear whether anyone is facing criminal charges related to the phony call.
