Niagara Police say Twitter reports last night of an active shooter on the campus at Brock University were not true. Three people were injured in an incident though. They were called to the campus around 8:00pm and found two people suffering from stab wounds and a third that may have been wounded with a pellet gun. All three were taken to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, and police say they are searching for suspects who fled in a vehicle.
