LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said Monday there has been no shooting on the campus of the University of Southern California (USC).

Reports of shots fired at USC have been deemed a false alarm after police rushed to the campus and conducted systematic search.

"We can confirm there's been no shooting on USC campus. No danger to community," said LAPD in a statement posted on Twitter.

"No evidence of shooting. No injuries reported," according to a statement of the university.

"The University sent a saying to students that we may resume normal activities," Christy Wang, a student of the USC told Xinhua.

"Some students told me that their teacher called the police to report the shooting," said Wang.

"The teacher was emotional in the morning because several of her friends were killed in last night's Las Vegas shooting. She always said there is a gunner coming. She began to cry and urged all of us to squat down in the corner," Wang relayed eyewitness accounts to Xinhua.
