WACO, Texas (Oct. 3, 2019) - After Waco PD reported that shots were fired at a location three blocks off campus (South Fifth Street at Daughtrey Avenue), Baylor PD issued a Baylor Alert per Clery requirements for our campus community to shelter in place until law enforcement resolved the situation and the all clear was given by Waco PD.

We appreciate our students, faculty and staff complying with the alert until we received the all clear.

For additional clarification, the incident did not occur on the Baylor campus but nearby. It did not involve an active shooter on the University campus.

This case is being handled by the Waco Police Department. Contact Waco PD Sgt. Patrick Swanton at 254-750-7500.
