Police are looking for a person of interest after finding shell casings and blood while responding to a report of shots fired at the University of Arizona on Wednesday night.

University of Arizona Police Department officers found the casings near the Thomas W. Keating Bioresearch building.

A police spokesman says a person called in saying they heard three shots fired and then screaming or yelling.

Sgt. Filbert Barrera, a UAPD public information officer, says dispatch was able to find footage on campus cameras.

Police say they are looking for a 5-foot-10-inch man wearing a Chicago Bulls hat, white shirt, khaki pants and a tan backpack.

Berrera says the hospitals have not reported any gunshot victims.

Shortly after 10 p.m., police said they cleared the scene around the Bio5 building and that there was no continuing threat to the campus.
