Des Moines, Wash. – Authorities say they found no evidence of a shooting at a Washington state community college where there were reports of shots fired.

Kent Assistant Police Chief Rafael Padilla said Friday that authorities walked the entire Highline College campus and did not find anything. The school of about 17,000 in Des Moines, Washington, was placed on lockdown about 9 a.m.

Just before noon, the school says law enforcement told them the situation was “all clear.” Classes for the remainder of the day were cancelled.

The school is located about 15 miles south of Seattle.
