HOUSTON A building was evacuated Wednesday night as police investigated reports of an armed person on the University of Houston campus, but no suspicious activity was found, investigators said.

It happened at about 10:10 p.m. at the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center located in the 4500 block of University.

The recreation center was evacuated and Air 11 video showed students gathered along a sidewalk as a line of police cars filled the street.

At about 10:45 p.m. police completed evacuations and the building was found to be clear of any sign of danger, University of Houston spokesperson Shawn Lindsey said.

The area was then cleared and the shelter-in-place lifted.
