OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Police say there have been no arrests in a shooting at a dance at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

Officers evacuated the Reeve Memorial Union late Saturday night when someone fired a gunshot into the air at the dance. No one was hurt. Residence hall staff were quickly notified and dormitory doors were locked.

WBAY-TV (http://bit.ly/1fj653B ) says some students expressed concern that they were not notified sooner about the shooting via an alert system. The university says it waited two hours before sending a notification because there was no broad threat to the campus.

There were about 200 to 300 people at the dance, which included non-students as well.
