Woman with weapon enters U. of Louisville health center; is disarmed

LOUISVILLE, Ky. " A woman who walked into a health services building with a weapon at the University of Louisville has been disarmed.

School spokeswoman Cindy Hess says university police arrived seven minutes after receiving a call and found a hostage situation. Hess says she doesn't know how many people were taken hostage, but there were no injuries.

Hess says the woman was disarmed shortly after police arrived.

An initial posting on the school's Web site described the person as a student, but Hess said she couldn't confirm that.

The university sent safety alerts to student phones, cell phones and posted one on its Web site. Hess says the campus was not locked down.
