The Ohio University and Athens Police Departments are investigating gunshots fired between Court Street and West Union and Washington around 2 a.m. Sunday.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the incident.

A witness at the scene, Maxwell Powers, told WOUB that he heard the gunshots after police responded to a fight in front of Skyview Apartments at 31 S. Court Street.

Officers blocked off a portion of Court Street to investigate the scene. It was reopened around 3 a.m.

Officers then searched Seigfred Hall and surrounding buildings. By 4 a.m. officers had left Seigfred.

Authorities have yet to release any details about their investigation.
