Multiple gunshots were reported outside a campus dormitory on Baker University's campus early this morning, according to Baker University spokesman Steve Rottinghaus and Baldwin City Police. No injuries were reported.

Up to five shots were reported by resident assistants at Irwin Hall around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. The shots were fired outside into the north end of Irwin Hall, which is a campus dormitory that was housing 28 students at the time of the shooting, Rottinghaus said.

Campus isn't open Monday in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but Rottinghaus says he expects classes to resume at regularly scheduled times on Tuesday.

Increased round-the-clock security patrols will continue on campus, he said.

"The safety of our students is our top priority and we will continue to assist law enforcement officials in their investigation," Rottinghaus said.

Baldwin City Police Sgt. Mike Underwood said the case was still under investigation and no further details were available.
