SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

Students on part of the Saint Louis University medical school campus were ordered to shelter-in-place after shots were fired nearby Monday night.

The order was made after shots were fired from a four-door, light colored car traveling on Park Avenue near Car Lane. Four bullets hit the Learning Resource Center building, but nobody was injured.

The order was issued for students in the Learning Resource Center on the medical school campus after the shots were fired around 8:45 p.m. The order was lifted a little less than an hour later.

Campus Public Safety officials are asking students to following several safety tips including walking with others, especially at night, and to report suspicious activity on campus to the Department of Public Safety. They also want to remind students that the Department of Public Safety provides free escorts for students and staff.

Police said they do not have any suspects in custody. They also said it is believed to be a random incident.
