Gunshots were heard on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology late Thursday night in what the University called an “active shooter incident”, according to the MIT website and Twitter account.

A campus officer was shot and was transported to a nearby hospital, said state police spokesman Lt. Mark Kiley.

The gunshots were reported outside Building 32, according to MIT, and police and FBI swarmed the location.

MIT encouraged students through its Twitter account to “stay indoors and away from the area.”
