A domestic dispute spilled over onto the campus of Colorado Heights University yesterday. Although shots were fired by Denver police, no injuries were reported.

KMGH reports that the trouble began at 4:15 pm, when police were called to a location near the campus to respond to a report of domestic disturbance. Police found a man and woman sitting in a car and the man fled the scene. He ran onto the Colorado Heights campus where he was chased and confronted by police. The man then made motions which led the officer to believe that he was armed and dangerous. The officer fired several shots in response to this perceived threat. No one was hit and the man was apprehended. He is now in custody of Denver police.

In response to the incident, the University locked down the campus at 4:20 p.m. The lockout was cancelled at 5:35 p.m. and classes began at their regularly scheduled times.
