STORRS, CT (WFSB) -

Oak Hall at the University of Connecticut in Storrs has been given the "all clear" after students inside were told to shelter in place on Wednesday.

Around 4:15 p.m., police received a call from a person inside Oak Hall, an academic building on campus, saying they overheard a "concerning conversation."

School officials did not call it a "threat" but said they had everyone inside "shelter in place" so police could do a sweep of the building.

Emergency crews searched the building and did not find anything that would indicate danger to the campus.

School officials said classes starting before 6 p.m. in Oak Hall were canceled, but classes starting at 6 p.m. and later will take place. No other buildings or class schedules were affected.
